This one’s strictly for utility. measures about 40” across, 16” deep and 5 tall. I needed something better than the old suitcase i was using, even though I don’t play so much anymore. Still, i needed a place to keep them, so I built this to fit.
Built from Borg 5-ply doweled and glued together. Handle is solid cherry with oak dowel, and the “feet” are mahogany scraps. Finish is about a million coats of poly + cherry stain (you can see my super sloppy job!). The most important part of the whole thing is actually the hardware: I used window locks that spin into place and use an internal cam to tighten up. They make this absolutely the easiest guitar pedal case to open and close. There are 2 along the top and bottom edges, and they’re totally enough to keep it closed. I did add a little lip to the inside of the top cover in order to keep out dust. pedals are held in with pipe strapping screwed into the bottom panel. Foam is recycled and spot hot glued into place. That’s pretty much all there is to say about this. oh yeah – the altoids tin is hot glued on and holds pics and ear plugs :-)
