A fellow tradie friend of mine who is a psssst metalworker bought the nutsert gun and asked me to make a box for it.
As it was love job I pecked throught my timber off cut stock to see if there was anything suitable.
I found some pieces of 12 and 16mm ply wood and a piece of 4mm perspex.
I used the gun to work out a suitable dimension and built it in dry assembly methods to ensure everything fitted in and looked reasonably fibanachi.
Nothing too fancy titebond III but joints cut the recess with a router bit, cut everything else including the perspex on my Einhell compound miter saw, its advertised as being able to cut plastic and metals, and worked well on the perspex.
Did the holes for the acccessories in a separate piece of ply with a forstner bits and the base hole for the gun with hole saw in the bench top drill press, sanded it and then slid it in and then glued it in place.
Used the 16mm as the back and 12mm all other sides.
Added some of my hand made bead to the edge of the ply finish it off
Wacked a couple of rare earth magnets in the sides to hold the two tools.
Finished with a light sand and then a coat of water based coal tinted sanding sealer.
I reckon he will be annoyed as it looks like a showcase rather than a transit box!
I was going to use my 3D router all over it but thought I had better not!
