Default Plyometric Boxes

These boxes are used for exercise programs involving stepping up and down with weights. I built these with a friend that is a personal trainer. I'm pretty happy how they turned out. I used a router table to make all the joints, feet and hand holes. A detailed write up on how I made them is here.

Very nice work. I like the way you did the non slip surface work.

Thanks. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. It's very satisfying to do something like that and have it come out exactly as you imagined.

That is excellent work. One small suggestion for future projects. Make them NEST into each other, so that two or three of them will only take up the footprint of one unit. Alternately, since the larger one has a bottom panel, a protrusion at the feet of the shorter unit that rests into pockets around the top of the larger unit would allow them to be stacked into an end table or something when not in use.

I told the coach at the gym I go to that I'd make him a plyo box...guarantee it won't be that nice, Phil! Beautifully crafted.

I think the jig is key to making these boxes. If you come down Seattle way, I will give you my jig. Though, it's not hard to make your own.
