    Anyone else out there use one? My parents had one growing up and I'm getting back into camping so I decided to build one. It just keeps your camp kitchen stuff organized and in a grab and go state so it's just that much easier to go camping. ImageUploadedByOHubCampfire1354498574.211621.jpg

    Looks nice.

    Haven't used one since I was a young boy scout. When we'd do long campouts, we'd bring the chuck. Of course, we never had a stove in ours, just pots, pans, utensils, and cooking basics (oil, spices, flour, sugar) and clean up stuff (soap, scrubbers). From what I remember, our opening flopped down and had metal cable that tied it to the top of the box and made it a working surface. It also had some kind of stand (when setup) and rope handles on the side to carry (lug) it to the camp site.

    If you make the "door" a working surface, I'd think having one of the rollable cutting mats would be useful.

    That looks really good!

    When we tent camped with the family we would use a bunch of plastic "tote" bins to store stuff. We ended up buying a camper 10 years ago.

    I have always been interested in the "outdoor kitchen" setups, with the sink, work area, and shelves. It is a lot of equipment, though.

    Something like this:
