Default The flat bed

Here's what I have so far. Jahara brown Cabot stain, diamond plated black tool box. I am going to get a metal frame around it when I have a few extra bucks painted te gray of my truck, and staggered sides either painted gray or stained jahara brown as well. Anyone have some homemade flat beds that are not horrid?

Depends how you make em and how hard you use em. I know quite a few that have been holding up for years. For what I'm gonna be using it for, it'll hold up just fine. Thanks for your concern buddy.
