and the finished ...mostly electric box made out of an old fog machine box, what i have in there is a 4 gauge wire that comes from the positive connector to the fuse box that i split into 5, 12 gauge strands that connect to a fuse box that holds at lowest a 10A fuse to a 30A fuse for my wall socket converter, shout out to O reiley auto parts for that know how :P

i think its great, the drawer i made is 3 ft by 3 ft, with 2x6 on the outside frame and 2x4 on the inside, then i made a plywood top to go over the box, i still need to anchor it more permanently but for now its been an awesome storage unit

Haha I see some similarities to my build here!!

What did you use for opeing and closing the drawer in the back or is it just sitting on the floor and you just have to pull it a little harder?
