"I make my boxes out of 1 by 2. 6 by 12 inches. Through neck. That gives a good mount for the plate. You want the sides thick enough that they don't crack when you drill for the Jack and volume pods."

Licence Plate Box Build

Posted on July 10, 2017 at 7:35pm 6 Comments

I'm thinking about doing a licence plate git and have been looking at various posts here there and everywhere and have noticed that almost all of the boxes that get built are rather thick.  Just wondering if there is a reason for this, as I have some really nice 1/2 inch Birch plywood that I got from my boss, and was considering using that to make the back and sides.  But as I said all I see are really thick boxes. So what do you guys think?

And I know......... "There are no rules"…
