First grab your fence boards and sand down at least one side (this will be the inside and believe me it will be way easier to sand when not assembled)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANow it’s tome to cut, think about how long you want your box to be? Ours will be a little over 3 feet long…time to cut (x3)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGot your bottom and two sides cut? Time to cut the ends that will finish off the long rectangular box. We made ours the exact size of the width of wood.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANo need for those dog ears anymore!

Time to drill the ends on, be sure to drill a release hole first to prevent the wood from splitting.

Now do this just a few more times (aka a lot more times to create your box rectangle)

And fill those screw holes with some wood putty, then dry and sand.

Now for the stain- gorgeous!! We used “Ash”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThrow a coat of clear shellac on there to seal it up.

Let it dry, fill your box with rocks (it will be heavy!!) and then place your chaffing fuel in….

Now just pop off the lids of the chaffers, light those and they should last for 2 hours while you roast away.

Now I just need to grab my smore’s stick and get to roastin’

Happy Zesting!!
