    I was looking for front roll out plans and have only found rear plans. If anyone can guide me to a thread or can send them to me, I would appreciate it. I only need a 6 hole box, but could modify existing plans if they are for more or less. Thanks!

    If you build one, then just make its roll anyway you want.

    Opa's was a great example of a roll-out. I just built mine.

    We made the rear roll, did not really fit well because it was one big box, so we put the openings to the wall and then got the jigsaw and cut new openings 'on the back' which is now the front.
    They hop over the flip lid egg boxes to get inside.
