Homemade trunk...

Well I had some spare wood laying around so I thought I would put it to use. Enjoy.




I now have it painted and L-brackets supporting it. I'll have those pics asap.

If that gets wet...it's gonna swell and warp... here's a simple fix for that. First get some kind of coating like polyurethane (not sure if that's what you want...but you want something made for sealing/waterproofing wood) and coat it real good. Then go pick up some carpet like what they use to cover subwoofer boxes and carpet the wood...that'll make it look prettier. Then nobody will be able to tell that it was a cheap custom job.

Well see this was just a template for me to measure and take and get some diamond plate and make it out of one solid piece that or just lay the plate over the wood still not decided.
