I made two boxes as gun cases… Have to be strong. These boxes are constructed rigid and the joint used were dovetail.
Photo 1-3 are for the first big box – George’s
Photo 4-6 are for the slightly smaller box. – Rene’s
I could not find the right hardwares for these boxes… The hasps is too big. There is no appropriate handle even. The owners want it bare with handles. They will carry it by clasping it for safety. At anyrate, it will be detained either in the house or in the car. Normally, it will not be displayed. What is best… IT SERVES THE PURPOSE.
These boxes may be simple in construction and design but the owners’ request will prevail. You dont need to have a very beautiful box or an attractive one. The curiosity of the person who sees it will tend to expose what is really inside… a gun. In order to attain such, I focus on the rigid construction rather that on the beauty and attraction. As we all know GUNS and ROSES have two different interpretation… GUN BOX and JEWELRY BOX.
