Finished my low buck box blind over the weekend and put it out yesterday. All said and done, I might have $100.00 in it. Next one I build is going in the air!

That looks very nice indeed! I'm thinking of building one or two for my grandkids to hunt from; I want a little shelf on the windowsill for a gun rest or bipod.

Do you have any plans for it, or did you just figure it out as you went?

I basically just figured it out as I went. Framed the base out of 2x6's. Framed the walls out of 2x3's. Sheathed all 4 sides with T-111 and cut out the windows and door with a jig saw. I added a shelf in the front two corners with a notch cut in each one to rest your rifle against. Painted the inside flat black and did a redneck camo paint job on the outside with about 4 different colors from spray cans. The only items I bought were the 2x3's for the wall framing, the paint, and the hinges.
