Not crazy at all - I built a truck box for Chevy S-10 about 20 years ago and it worked great. Used 2x2 for framework and 1/2" exterior plywood. Made the lid with an inch hangover on three sides and mounted it with three hinges at a little angle so the water would run off into the truck box. Used weatherstripping on the inside of the lid to keep the water from blowing in. Exterior paint, about 3 coats, to match the truck color and it worked great. The box was as wide as the truck box, high as the truck box and about 2 1/2 feet deep. Used to mainly to carry groceries, etc. back and forth from the store. Put a regular hasp on it so you can lock it if you want.
Was in Seattle then and used it for three years there - truck was parked in driveway all the time and the wet never bothered. Still have it in the shed and use it for storage - still looks good.

Encouragement- Just what I needed!

Sounds like you had a lot of success with yours Don, thats good to hear. Looks like I''d put some weatherstripping around the lid to keep everything nice and dry. Heck go to a place that sells truck boxes with a tape measure and steal the dimensions. The fact that its going to be covered with rinolining will really make it weather proof, so you can go with any design you want! (over-the-bedrails, chest style, etc.)

I think its a neat idea. I think if you seal the wood with Thompsons you are really gonna have a hard time getting the bedliner to stick. I would go with a few coats of spar urethane and then you can rough up the urethane finish with sandpaper and I would think the bedliner would stick to that no problem. In the long run, the spar urethane is gonna be a better weather proofer than the Thompsons anyhow. You could also go the route of glassing the whole thing insted of the bedliner. It would last forever then but thats pretty pricey compared to the other options.

The answer is if it''t....tough skin because some people think you''s currently in my garage with the bed-liner drying, I''m going to line it with that high density gun-case foam, in the drawer and on the lid so that it creates a tight and secure area for my firearms to ride.

Wow! I never posted on this one originally because I wasn''t feel that I had any valuable input to your questions. Lets just say that I never, in a million years, saw this coming. An absolutely fantastic job. Looks great, well designed and well built. I think you mentioned getting it Rhino coated or something like that. Is that still the plan?
Great job good sir. Great job.
