Default my trailer accessorie build

So I needed a tool box and a bucket holder for my trailer. I couldn't find anything that would fit like I wanted to, and the one tool box I did find, was only about 6" wide and cost $375. I didn't want to spend that money so I decided to build some stuff. I used 1/2" plywood with some bracing on the inside of the box. When it's all completely done, I'm going to sand it and roll it with bedliner to weatherproof it and make it look nice! let me know your thoughts.

The trailer:


Progress so far:





and here's a complete lay out of the trailer once all the equipment gets delivered in the next couple weeks here.

Wonder how many coats that OSB will take before it stops sucking paint. Great idea though!

Looks good, but I would have used treated plywood instead of OSB. Especially cuz it'll be around water. Do you have a pressure washing business or something like that?

I don't think it will matter once it's sealed with a bed liner, it will be waterproof and pretty rigid...

last time I painted plywood, I just did 2 coats and it worked fine. Ended up looking like my bed so I would say I'll will probably do 2-3 coats on this whole thing
