Show us you Camping Chuck Boxes
« on: January 19, 2020, 09:15:23 PM »
This seems to be a US-inspired product? But while looking for a way to keep all my kitchen stuff in one place, I stumbled across this link https://www.rei.com/blog/camp/how-to-build-your-own-camp-kitchen-chuck-box and it looked perfect for my camping needs. Everything stored in one place, just chuck it in the back of the truck when you go camping.

Problem was that inches don't translate too well on cut sheets in my country, so I reworked the design a little to be metric, but still off a 4x8 sheet of ply, which we do get where I live.

Finished it today, and promise to post some picture on this thread when next camping with the box.

So who else has a chuck box?  :dunno:

First chance to use the chuck box. Went camping this weekend in Pilanesberg National Park. Worked really well as a field kitchen.  :tu:

My dad made one like it one day.
Completely handbuild stainless construction.


It should be on their attic at the moment...

Buy now or regret later

Huh, wow that is cool.
I'm surprised I didn't think of it...

My food storage setup in the zombie truck is heavy steel drawers (the sort that are designed to be fitted to the vehicle, not removed)
and my utensil setup at home is a 6 drawer toolbox (I was never a fan of just having all the random cooking tools in the second drawer under the cutlery...)

but somehow the idea of an all in one solution like that has never occurred to me.

This project has serious potential....


I'd never heard of this before, but apparently (once you know the term) they're quite common (at least common enough to get multiple mentions online)

Thanks everyone!  :hatsoff:
It was a fun project and really practical. I was initially worried that it was going to be too small, but it worked out just right. Any larger and it would be too heavy for one person to pick up. At least I now have one place for everything, and it all stays in the box when at home so less chance of forgetting things.  :whistle:
