Long ago I saw a great description on the CF forum. Alas I cant find it though, and am looking to build some boxes for our opening. Any of you have some good links?

Greg's jerk blocks could also function as plyo boxes.

Tyler beat me to it. I built two sets of plyo boxes off those plans and they are bullet proof. I used 1/2 inch plywood. The first set was those dimensions and the second set I scaled down to 16 inches tall.

+1 on the blocks...

i built a slightly beefier version of Greg's blocks, they are also good for loading heavy stones/kegs/sandbags. jumping on, sitting and drinking on and do make a handy buffet table in a pinch.

How did you beef them up? Thicker wood and/or more cross supports?

Best,
