Why do you want such a big battery? I built mine out of plywood and painted it black.

I didn't do any drawers in mine. I wanted to and still could, but it was to compicated for me at the time. I basically did a rectangle box and put a divider in the middle and then put a shelf on one side of the divider for my starter and battery to set on. Then under the starter shelf I cut a hole (big enough for my hand) so I could put all my misc. junk. On the other side of the divider I put all of my cleaning supplies. Also a spot for my fuel on the side. I might be able tio posst pics later.

It is pretty efective. It will hold everything that I need at the field, my glow starter, electric starter, fuel, cleaning supplies and a few tools in my storage hole. Whatever you like I guess.
