It’s a pretty simple Oak box but I wanted something to carry other than throwing boxes in a Dewalt tool bag. I sanded a little too much on the front left corner and is shown in the pictures. It did give me a chance to try a new clamping technique when laminating the top boards together. I clamped vertically and horizontally (if that makes sense).
The dimensions are 11 1/2×6 x 3. The interior depth ended up being 1 5/16 after I got going. I used box joints and it will hold 4 boxes of 9mm ammo (200 total). I would like to build a more universal box for the range but I am still thinking on what I really want that to be.
It’s finished with minwax “gunstock” stain and a satin poly topcoat. The hinges and latch are simple and were bought at Pat Catans a couple of blocks away from me.
Thanks for looking.
