Santa brought my son a R/C plane for Christmas so I figured I would build him some sort of field/tool box to use while out flying his plane. We made a successful maiden voyage last weekend but the wind has pretty much kept him grounded this week. I built the stand out of 1" PVC and misc. fittings. As for the box itself, I am building it out of 1/2" birch plywood. When finished, I will stain it and then add a coat of sealer. One end will house the fuel jug and the other will have a removable control box with electric starter. No plans involved here so I am pretty much winging it as I go. There were a few errors with the pocket holes and a few things I should have done differently but it will have to do for now. I am using glue and pocket holes for the joinery. The box is assembled and the drawer pieces are cut out. Thanks, Steven
