The boxes are built with two pallets. One on top one on bottom, the pallets are 46"x46" with the 1"x6" on the outsides of that actual measuments of those is 3/4"x5-3/4". The entire box measures 47.5 across the top and bottom (both ways) and height is 41" tall. I figure the boxes as is, are a bit tall for me, I like a height of 3 foot. But I do like the idea of keeping the pallets as they are the least warped. Maybe using the slats to fill in the gaps or using ply wood across two of the pallets to make a 4ish foot by 8ish foot table top. I have plenty of the 1x6s to use. Plus I can go back and get two more boxes on Monday. Thanks for any help!
