Found these on CraigsList today. Do they look substantial enough for 2 ft x ~1.5 ft TTs supported by 4" x 8" x 16" concrete blocks I have left over from a wall building project??? Depending on how the bottoms are constructed, I'd either drill holes in them for drainage or remove them and replace w/hardware cloth and weed barrier. What do you think?

24" by 20" by 7" deep wood box / drawer / storage container. Jointed corners, old but well built. 13 available for $3 each.

I think they will work. I saw another post somewhere that used dresser drawers.

The jointed corners may need reinforcing. Wood swells and cracks when wet and the joints may not hold up. A few well placed exterior screws should prevent later problems.
