I build these to sell to suploment my social security. I use 1/4” plywood, no nails or screws – all joints are glued and surprisingly strong.

Griffin : I use all 1/4” plywood and convoluted foam, available from www.uline.com( NOTE: get your foam FIRST, so you will know how deep you need to make your case)
1 ) glue 4 sides together2 ) glue top and bottom on3 ) cut top half from bottom half4 ) glue another layer around the inside of the bottom that stands 1/4” above the outside5 ) glue another layer around the inside of the top that is at least 1/4” short of the outside6 ) sand and finish7 ) apply hinges handels and latches with 1/2” screws ( I use 5/8” screws and pean them over on the inside so thay can’t back out )If you need any more feel free to ask.Lou

Most hardware I get from Rockler, but some from National, and some from Kennedy also, it’s acording to what look I want.
