Home made aluminum storage box
I priced out the cost of materials to fabricate an aluminum deluxe storage box very simular to the box Aluminess sells for $675.
Cost of materials only (i would be doing the TIG welding), which would include powder coating, and having the door section professionally shapped in a press brake, is approx. $375. Id like to see one if anyone is in the SF-Bay Area and has one that I can look at. Mine would be .12 inch thick sheet 5052 aluminum. I believe the Aluminess boxes (which I’ve heard they do not make in house), are only .09 inch thick sheet aluminum.
