|The Official Patrol Leader Handbook has
plans for a chuck box with legs and a hinged front that serves as a work
table when it is opened. In this version, the front swings up and over the
top for the work table. This project can be cut from a 4 ' x 8 ' sheet of
3/4 " exterior plywood. Shelves are positioned according to the size of
the equipment the patrol wants to store. Assemble with glue and screws.
Chair skids are used to support the table top. Use hooks and eyes to keep
the legs closed while it is being carried.
On a personal note, my troop used a camp kitchen
very much like this one for many years. Although much smaller than
the typical patrol box used by BSA troops, it was very satisfactory, and
it was retired only when past further repairing. See if it might be just
what your troop needs.
