If you have duplicate boxes that are too skinny for a build have a go at a doubledecker.

Remove the top from one and the base from the other,Line  with thin ply to glue them together - result a nice deep useable box

Good idea!

One way I like using skinny depth boxes is building the frame that goes under the box. Also lets the bottom of the box resonate better as there is only 2 connect points on the bottom edges of the box.   2 string skull bridge build

That's also a good idea,like that git

Did this once making a uke works nice, easy to do, why didn't we think of this before?

Why didn't we ?

Thanks Wayfinder
