Just getting started on this. Collecting wood and parts.

The plan is to have 2 or 3 or 4 drawers of 62" length and fit under a platform in 2 or 4 parts that is removable. Maybe even be able to covert parts it to tables for camping.

So far have some 3/4 inch Oak Plywood, and some one by 2 and one by 3 solid Oak.

Plan to use no hardware as in metal handles or hinges.

All will fit together and come apart by hand.

Will have to seal well and leave room for expansion and contracton due to will be here in the dry heat as well as on the beach in Mexico and in the snow in the mountains too.

The back of the Wagon is carpeted. I will add runners (half rounds) or teflon to the underside of the drawers so they can slide.

Will use a dowel or a mounted highlift to keep drawers from coming out.
