Has Anyone ever built...

Has anyone ever built a tool box for their truck... Im talking ones that ar the same style as the ones you buy....

The reason I ask is because I want one but I dunno about the prices you know?

I thought of building onethe coating it with maybe a bedliner type coating...

If you can TIG weld it'd probably be cheaper. If not, just go buy one.

Depending on what tools you have to make one, and how sturdy you want one, and the time it takes. I would much rather go buy one for 300 or so. Then just have it sprayed with bed liner coating.
