I was asked if I would make a farmer friend a CD case that he could keep in his pick up that would protect the CD’s from damage and dust. He could not find a hard case. He wanted dividers that hold 4 CDs each and just made from plywood. So it is baltic birch plywood and all the joints are lock mitered. The hardware is Menards variety, but I used 6-32 screws and nuts and washers on the handle instead of the wood screws provided. I was worried that them might pull loose from a lot of use. He is going to paint it. I hope he removes the hardware first!!

He has a nice pick up so I thought I’d make him a nice case.

Does it ever get real HOT in your area?

If so, and your friend keeps his CD’s in his truck on a HOT summer day, they could very easily get damaged.

Other than that, you made a very nice case for his CD’s…


Really cool!

Thank you.

That’s a nice looking CD box, try to persuade him to poly or wax it, I would hate to see that covered up with paint.

Hey Jim, I like this case and I bet that your friend will as well. Just right for protecting them and not letting them slip and slide all over the truck.

Thanks for sharing
