The invention discloses a container comprising bottom, left and right side, front, back and top assemblies. The front, back and top assemblies have a rectangular sheet with a batten frame affixed to the perimeter of a first face thereof and coincident with edges thereof. The bottom assembly has a rectangular sheet with a base frame affixed with the perimeter of a bottom face thereof. The base frame extends beyond the perimeter of the sheet to form a circumferential extension dimensioned therearround to be equal to the thickness of the sheet used in the other assemblies plus the thickness of the batten frame. During construction of the container, each assembly is glued and stapled prior to being glued and screwed to other assemblies. The side, back and front assemblies are arranged to form a rectangular tube with an inner surface declined entirely by the side, back and front assemblies sheet. The bottom assembly is positioned with its sheet fitting into the rectangular tube such that the circumferential extension can be glued, screwed to lower portions of the side, front and back assemblies. The top assembly is positioned with its sheet abutting upper portions of the side, front and back assemblies, and is glued screwed thereto.
