Patrol Kitchen Box Plans

These plans are based upon the Patrol Food Chest designed by the BSA Engineering Service and recommended in the Jamboree Leader Guide. Dimensions have been altered to reflect the size of 2x4s at this point in time (1.5" x 3.5").

Note: the materials list shows how to cut all of the pieces out of one 4' x 8' sheet of 3/4" plywood and two 8' long 2" x 4" studs. The plywood should be exterior grade. If treated "outdoor wood" studs are used, read precautions regarding toxicity of wood and saw dust.
