The managers of our park let me use the Ramset gun to nail my new deck to the concrete pad so I told them I’d make them a box for it. This is it. It holds the gun, some nails and the 22’s. Everything is recycled including the pill bottle for the 22’s
It was made from scraps of wood found in our shop. The bottom is particle board. Sides are pine and the lid is 1/2” plywood. I did not have any hinges or hasps laying around so I made a sliding lid. The lettering was done by Bill, our sign maker in the park. I only had black and white paint and borrowed the orange last night.

Cheers, Jim

Looks very professional! I need to make one of those if I can only remember where I put my gun (last used it back in the mid-90s, and then went to hammer drills).

Good to have proper storage Jim. It will also be an advantage next time you borrow it, lol.

Way too cool Jim. That Ramset never had a home that nice in its life.
