My glock box

I was looking for a project to do on LJ’S. I saw that someone made a box fire their gun a while back. I couldn’t find out again to reference mine, so I winged the plans from what I remembered in my head. I wanted a box to hold my gun anyway, so here we area. The wood is aromatic cedar that my buddy amoon gave me from his cutting board (that you can also see on LJ’s). The gun is a glock 23 that I bought about 10yrs ago. I finished it with two coats of clear semi-gloss urethane.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Thank you

Very sleek and I like the how the hollow form integral to the box itself. I made before a gunbox but leave it to the owner to make the hollow form in a plastic foam. Yours is excellent. Thanks for posting.

Good looking case and I like the smoother cut out and fit for the gun.

You may have inspired me to do the same thing for my XDM-40. Very nice work. Thanks for sharing.

well made and fitted. Perhaps you could add a lid closure device… like a magnet or a lockset? Just thinking of something to keep the lid closed… may not even be necessary.

very nice. I used to make those for flea market sales when I lived in the deep south. laser cut foam has kinda destroyed that market, but still fun for personal use!!

Looks like a nice fit, however one thing bothers me. You have a cutout on the back of the grip to help get the gun out, but none on the front, which leads to a natural inclination to grab the only open area on the front of the gun – the trigger. I realize you intention was probably that you leverage the gun against the end of the barrel, but again, I tend to look at “What’s the worst someone could do if they weren’t thinking”. After being in the engineering industry for a while, you just learn to never underestimate humanity.

great idea, nice fit, but, I agree with AuBrian. I would have made a recess in the front of the grip also, to be able to lift it out of the box. “brain-cramps” happen often…. I think I would have made another recess for an extra clip too.
