Wanted to make a camp kitchen for a while to use on the boat.
This is a more utilitarian version of https://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/326395/, and less elaborate than https://www.rei.com/blog/camp/how-to-build-your-own-camp-kitchen-chuck-box. I started with a piece of plywood that had been lying in the garage for so long it had a suntan. I first cut the box sides.
Then a rough size check.
Using a router, I made dados (grooves) to get a better gluing surface and to align the box.
Glued up the 4 sides.
Cut pieces for the top and bottom.
Glued and nailed together. A bit ugly but it will do.
Made the handles.
Some light sanding to clean up the plywood.
A few coats of marine varnish to protect.
Here we have: 2 plates, cup and pot (there is a small gas stove in the pot on the left), knife, 2 cutlery sets, another pot, 2 cups, fuel and main stove.
That’s more than I would usually take and it all fit easily in the box.
I’m looking forward to using it outdoors.
