Default Errmm... Box help.

So if my cuts aren't perfectly straight, will I be okay if I caulk every seam in it and make it air tight? Don't have a big table saw and cuts weren't perfect when cutting the 4'x8' pieces of plywood.

Use pl ultimate. Way better then caulk.

Still use titebond when u put it together the first time. Then pl ultimate from the inside.

Can always buy your wood at Lowes or home depot and have them make a few of the longest cuts they will be pretty str 8 and then go from there .

I used liquid naillol and.worked just fine

this is a good move, but it seems as though hes already got the cuts made.
use some form of construction adhesive like the one mentioned above or liquid nail. to add a little strength. maybe you will be ok. or if you have a harbor freight locally you can buy a belt sander and try to level it out some.

Yup, have everything together except the top. The cuts aren't perfectly straight. And I got the wood at Menards, and I don't know if they cut it for you there. They're not bad, maybe 1/16th off in some places. I planned on using some sort of sealant on every seam on the inside to make it completely airtight. And then I'll use some more maybe on the outside seams, or something else that would work better and let me still carpet it. Everything was cut within 1/16 -1/8 of the dimensions and went together nicely

Use silicone! It is not water based like most sealants, so it can be applied to larger cracks if needed, and doesn't deteriate. I had to do this when I first started building boxes, and still use it every once in a while for minor errors.

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.

It's already put together except the top. It fit very nice, but the cuts were not PERFECTLY precise. I am only human, and I don't always have everything needed to make really nice boxes like I've seen. Guess it'll just take some practice. As this is my first box, I'm not TOO worried about it. Next box I do will be done very carefully with dowels or something.

I also plan on carpeting it. Does anyone know where I can get some decent carpet for a box, or know where to order it from?

Thanks Korey!
Thanks everyone else with your answers too!
If anyone has any other suggestions, don't hesitate to leave a reply either.
