We bought our frame with two regular dry boxes. When we got a GC permit, I ordered a 38'' x 13'' x 18'' kitchen box and haven't used the bow drybox since. It's perfect for large groups or when just the two of us do a solo boat trip. It can be easily configured for what ever we need. The legs are the hit. I can't imagine using a reg. box sitting on the ground again. When we get invited on trips, it's often with the proviso that the kitchen box comes with us.
The legs take up minimal space. I do think the 18'' depth is key and when we order a new one, I will specify that it has to be that depth.

I saw the design on the Mad Cow kitchen box. The legs look like they would be much more economical space wise than the traditional design that has tubes welded inside the box. Take a look at their website and tell me what you think. Also they will custom make a box with the thicker aluminum stock and I think that would be great. BTW I own a Frontier Play box and it is a good box but I really want one like the Mad Cow made to custom dimensions. If someone owns a Mad Cow kitchen box I'd like to hear what you think of the leg design.

The series of photos below will answer the rest of your questions.

1. This is how SuperStove rides on the raft, using a frame similar to a cooler frame. SuperStove was built with the same dimensions as the old standard Cascade Frames dry box that it is sitting on. If you want it to ride lower, flip the frame over.

2. The frame pulls apart to make the legs. This was fabricated by TMS Frames in Vancouver.

3. We hook the top of the leg frames over the SuperStove handles, then secure them in place with the green strap.

4. Stand it up and make it level.

5. Open the lid.

6. We would keep the windscreen down at night to keep dew from wetting the burners. As users of Partner Stoves know, the burners won’t light if wet.

7. Ready to use. Setup time 2 minutes.

SuperStove Contents:

Upper Left Compartment: 2 Coffee Pots – Sierra Cups inside one, Bag of Coffee inside the other. Coffee Mate (if we have coffee polluters along). Should be a can of cooking spray.

Top Center Compartment: The Aluminum Foil box mostly hides the Rome Industries “3-Handle Cooker” (the handiest piece of camp cookware ever made – currently not in production) Stored inside the cooker are wine glasses, piezoelectric stove igniter, dish towels)

Left Center Compartment: Stack of Salad/Dessert bowls (behind the little crockery pot full of sugar) and there would typically be a roll of garbage sacks in that compartment.

Right Center Compartment: Woody’s Dutch Oven (hidden behind the zip-lock bag containing salt & pepper and the Mogur’s coffee mug). Matches and leather gloves are inside the D.O.

Upper Right Compartment: Stainless Steel Stock Pot containing a Mirro aluminum nesting cook kit with kettles, pans, plates, etc. Dishwashing soap, should be a roll of paper towels, zip-lock bags on top hold matches, spices, etc.
Lower Left Compartment is a pull-out drawer containing carving knives, an egg beater, cheese grater, pancake flipper.

Lower Center Compartment: There are 3 plastic cutting boards on top of the silverware case—which is a modified fishing tackle box. In addition to the usual kitchen & dining utensils, there are pliers, a wrench for the propane fittings, spare parts for the stove & lanterns, whetstone, etc. (Note: that stray spoon will interfere with the closure of the box.)

Lower Right Compartment: Dinner plates (with tropical fish motif, as I recall), room for a can of Crisco.

Under the stove burners, we typically carry dishwashing tools—scrubbers, sponges, etc. in a mesh bag.

Not to hijack this thread and turn it into a kitchen box porn thread.....though not as nice as Mogur kitchen box, I thought I'd post what ours looks like for a two person trip. We've done a 16 person, 18 day GC trip and 11 person Selway trip with the same box. Obviously, a different mix of pans, pots, coffee pot, etc.

Thank you for bumping this... I've searched several times for kitchen box ideas and had not found this thread and without it wouldn't have found quite possibly the coolest kitchen box ever. I totally dig the idea of having the stove attached to the lid. In all my free time this winter, I will be building something based on that drybox...probably with wings too! - I had found and adopted endomadness's side tables.

No problem on the bump - I actually found it linked to a post in the gear swap selling a rome cooker...
I don't know how I missed seeing this get posted either. For allegedly being a grumpy old dude, The Mogur has some pretty cool ideas, check out his "flyer-pan" sometime.
