Help design plywood box

I need to build a rectangular plywood box. The dimensions will be something like 12"x12"x48". One of the ends needs to be capped, but I could cap both ends. I was thinking about running 2x4's along the inside vertically and just nailing the plywood to them. I would then run small blocking perpendicular to the studs. This seems like a little overkill though. It will be used to support about 25 lbs.

Help design plywood box

Agreed, 2x4 is too much, probably better using 2x2 rather than the 2x4 to lighten it up. Would suggest to consider to glue and screw it together than than nailing for more rigidity.
