For lack of anything better to do at the moment than continue with the same line of investigation...
Is there anyone with SoD handy who could let me know exactly how many planks there are on the crate's side, and approximately how wide the planks are?
(If we never get to see the box's other sides, which is very likely considering Rich's style, I'll just assume it's square and symetric unless any of you have a reason to suggest it might not be.)
GW had pegged the box's height at 6'. We agree on that?
