sorry to bump this, but there is a lot of great info. I'm trying to build a 8-10 ft box for a backyard and was wondering on the thickness. read people used everything from 1/4" to 1/2" and was wondering if there was any feed back? HDPE is where I'm going as funds are limited, but if 1/4" works, I might be able to spring for UHMW.
¼ sounds very thin to countersink the screws, or are people just gorilla gluing this to a sheet of plywood?

|Extremo||Yeah I agree short boxes and rails are so limiting. My first was 8ft and after about an hour I was already trying to fig out how to build a longer one.|

I would build it half the width, take out the middle supports as they are just extra weight for nothing. Also now that it is half the width you can make two of them which will fit in the back of a truck easily, then you have twice the length. Its also good because then its more of a ledge than a box, so you have to use more balance while sliding it rather than just jumping onto a wide flat surface.
Also, short boxes get boring fast, so your going to want something where you can lock in a slide for a decent amount of time.
So in my opinion build two or three ledges that connect to each other.

|iKimshi||I would build one but seeing as there's no place to put mine, I can't. But good luck on building yours.|
