After using snowolfs milk crate and bungee strap idea to hold my snowboards while waxing I decided something a little more stable was needed, also since we are up to five snowboards in the family now I want something thats quick and has easy cleanup.
Below is what I came up with, and it works like a charm. Im sure it can be done different or cheaper but this whole thing has less than $100 in it. I used pine boards instead of pressed wood boards to keep the weight down and to keep it more durable, it does have plenty of weight to keep it from slideing on the bench when scrapeing wax.
1" X 8" Pine Boards (sides)
18" X 72" Edge Glued Pine (base)
3/4" Aluminum Edge Trim
3" Threaded Suction Cups
1/4" Threaded Rivets
1/4" X 3/4" Screws
1/4" X 1.5" Screws
Caulking (To seal joints)
Paint & Decals
Drill (make sure holes are predrilled or your wood will split)
Beer (I drank quite a few on this project)
This is the box put together.
With Aluminum Trim.
Checking the spaceing
Painted & Final Assembly
My New Toy NS 161 SL
Completed Pimped Box
Looks good, but a shit ton of work.
Am I the only person that just throws his damn board over his knee and scrapes it?
Was not really that much work, Im a DIY person and like doing this kind of stuff. Like I said, got five boards to wax now so this will save a lot of time, frustration and cleanup.
Nice box, should keep the mess to a minimum. You should take it a step further and convert it to a hot box to give your boards the ultimate wax treatment.
For that amount of work you could've built a boat for summer? No?
God damn.. nice box but I just use some pushup handles on the counter for waxing then scrape it on my lap or still on the counter.... free and the I don't have to keep that box around.
Nice setup and Fab though
Two kitchen stools and scrape in teh carpark so I don't get wax scrape all over the apartment :thumbsup:
Some how I expected fold out legs and a vacuum attachment for easy clean up. Still a awesome box though.
