No, I didn't weigh it, too much of a rush getting ready to leave for Moab in a couple of days. I usually follow Colin Chapmans' design rational "add lightness" but I was too pushed for time to reduce the weight by selectively removing unneeded material from the plywood. I could have used 1/2" plywood but I had some nice 3/4" maple so it got used. The weight difference is probably the same as the two unneeded pieces of angle iron, that used to support the battery, that I removed.

The front, back and top are 1/16" aluminum.

That is a beautiful job. You'll be at Moab? Great. Must compare boxes.
