Jerk, 'Strongman' fun 6-7-10

Cool boxes, how did you build them?

Stay tuned for a detailed write up. Simply put it is 4' long, and 2' wide. There is one sheet of plywood at the base, 8 4x4's as posts, and 3 layers of 2x12's as the platform and an 8" plywood skirt around the bottom. All screwed together. I want to test for a little while before the write up so I can stand behind claims like how beefy it is. It seems super solid but I want it to stand the test of time a little bit first. There are some cracks that developed after the first use. Maybe no big deal, but I want to make sure they aren't going to end up being a problem long term.
