Need some tips on how to tackle this? looks like a pita to do and glassing isn't an option because cash is low. any help is appreciated
I'll take the 1/4" off the top and add it on the sides of the box. Thanks for the help man I really needed it. Ill post pics of my build if anybody is interestedYou can give it a 0" lift on the back wall if you want, you just need to cut down the 2x6 to where the plywood is flush with the back step.
so basically do this design with a 2x4 instead of a 2x6 and then the the false floor should only raise you 1/4", which is the thickness of the top piece. even then who says you have to put the plywood over the rear step, just build the false floor to be level with that step. that way a portion of the box will be sitting on the rear step, and the other portion on the false floor.
also when i made mine i basically did a little notch for the Jack holder on the rear wall since i did not want to take it out.
