Wax Box

Don't know if this belongs here or a different section, feel free to move mods.

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.

Parts List:
1" X 8" Pine Boards (sides)
18" X 72" Edge Glued Pine (base)
3/4" Aluminum Edge Trim
Handles
Wood Screws
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

Tools Needed:
Saw
Drill (make sure holes are predrilled or your wood will split)
Screw Drivers
Beer (I drank quite a few on this project)



This is the box put together.



With Aluminum Trim.

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?

Thanks

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.

Well an awesome box does have fold out out legs, its pink, soft and has a landing strip for navigation but the vacuum is no where near the box. Cleanup is not my problem, what were we talking about?????
