You need to cut 3 boards into 15/18inch. Then glue them and join them with the wide board and you have to join them in the corner of the wide board. you have to cover 3side and one side will be clear to keep products. After joining the board pick up few screws then screw them with a screwdriver.

Remember for one side you need two screws and for three sides you need six screws or spikes. After screwing them in, the box will stronger and durable. you can use the aluminum frames to cover the edges of the box then it will be more durable. you have to cut those aluminum trims. you can use a miter saw to cut the aluminum trims.

Before cutting the aluminum trims make sure everything is fitted with the box edges.to mount those aluminum trims to the edges of the box you can use heavy-duty construction adhesive and also screws to mount to the box. Now the box becomes very much durable. Now you have to add wheels. You can have two or three wheels.
