these are pistol cases for my sister and brother in law. I did to different ones both out of pine and “select pine” I got from the homie depot. The material is 1/4 thick, I was hesitant to go that thin as the last project for a family member was out of 3/4 and as it was a bookshelf was stout to say the least. You will notice in one picture I have rubber band guns in the cases, little joke. My boys put them together, just lil kits from walmart 10 buck I think. The final picture has my first attempt at this box, it is a little smaller and has no latch on the front, but helped me all the same.
The joints are not impressive, but they are all hand cut. I went with finger joints well lets just say I tried hand cutting dovetails and I will need more than one practice box. All in all I think it went ok, I will always see the flaws as there are many but I will also remember the fun building them and hopefully they will be enjoyed by my sister and brother in law.
