Really nice gun box. Can you give a little more detail on thermoformed?

Great work on the case. A fitting tribute to the classic war vets, the 1911 and the ka-bar.

Thermo forming is done by heating vinyl sheeting and placing it on a vacuum table that has molds of the objects on it.

Pretty much heating up a piece of plastic and using vacuum pressure or a press to mold it. Something like that. I wired up a huge one for kayaks.

Sweet box and work.
