Handgun box made of walnut with maple splines and maple top. Lacquer and wax finish. Combination lock latch. I blued a piece of leather to the plywood bottom. Also made leather straps to hold the handgun and ammo in place.

Extremely well constructed! Mighty fine. What’s your armament? Looks quite healthy? Like the splined miter corners as well as the Maple top

Nice home for the Judge Ron.
That lock & latch look fitted just right too.
Nice work.

Ron, it’s a phenomenal box, workmanship is beautiful, but I have to ask the question. Can you unscrew the hinges and gain access to the gun without having to deal with the combination lock?

Wow Ron. That’s a nice box, and also a very nice CANNON you have in it!

I also wondered about the hinge screws like Jerry did.

This is a very nice box and a highly practical project.

Thanks guys.

Jerry & Joe – Unfortunately I used box style hinges that mount on the back – so yes the hinges can be removed from the outside. My goal for the lock was to prevent any visitors, grandnephew, etc from just opening it up. Anyone can get into the box fairly easily if they wanted to if they had a screwdriver, pry bar, etc.

Great looking box well crafted. The mitered corners look perfect and the dark interior color scheme is very fitting for a hand gun. Good job!
