use a carpenter "finish saw" I think 24" works great. Premark it on both sides and keep track of it as you cut. dimensions on the ones I made are 40"X 72"X10" thick. Inset 20" wideX24" deep. round off the edges by use a electric jitterbug sander with 80 grit emery cloth/sand paper. BIGG MESS= Send the wife shopping for the afternoon. the steel bar is not really needed. mark your tackle and inset areas and Use a jigsaw to cut out inset areas and then use the sander to smooth the areas. I have made about 12 to date. I cut my own down to 52" to fit in my van, still works fine. I hope this helps.

thanks ill try that
all these are 36 wide,12 deep and 72 length. I have experimented on two blocks so far just to get the feel for it and have 9 more left to actually make it. Im thinking out of the cut up ones ill just use a template to lay on the other ones to mark it instead of measuring all of them, that way lay the template down and mark it that way so dont have to keep measuring all the time.
As far as making trays be hard to do if i sell them since not everyone has the same size boxes so may just put in cup holder on each side then if they wont holders a certain size then cut them in then.

I don't sell these and you make them and use them at your own risk.

It's pretty cool that this was your first very post on the TFF. 10 years later and you're still contributing to it!
