    His buddy has been pretty busy lately and has been taking awhile to build boxes, either way I'm first in line when he's available to build me a box...lol...As you can see, I've needed a few boxes built too.

    you can do it yourself its easy some deck screws some liquid nails (project type is fine) and good square cuts and glue and screw it together.

    Re: Looking for a box builder in the San Diego area

    The key to making a solid box is the straight cuts and the glue. The glue is what really holds the box together. The screws just kinda keep it in place, the glue bonds the two pieces of wood together, so having perfectly straight cuts and clamps makes for really nice assembly. Also have some 90 degree clamps when putting up side walls to make sure they're square and true.

    AND REMEMBER!!! ALWAYS PRE-DRILL THE HOLES OR THE MDF WOOD WILL SPLIT. Use 3/4" MDF wood
