Shooting Range Box

This project was just finished for one of my shooting buddies that wanted a lighter box than the one he was using. I used stacked rare earth magnets to hold the drawer in and to hold the small doors in the lid closed. Dimensions for interior spaces in the box were based on the items he wanted to carry in the box. Many of my projects have something to do with competitive shooting.

That’s really nice, Don. I’m a shooter, too, and you may have just inspired a new project for me!

Great looking box, I have to design a new range box for myself, except this time I want to make it big enough
to hold the larger targets in a bottom drawer. Arthritis and the cooler spring and fall weather have made me
drop out of the tactical shooting participation, but the wife and I still like to shoot against each other. I even
haul my dueling target out to the range every now and then. Thank you for sharing.

Nice box Don, what did it end up weighing at finish? What are the dimensions?

Thank you. It’s between 11 and 12 pounds and measures 21”x 11” x 11”. I cut the lumber down to 3/8”.

The wood is walnut and the finish is General Arm-R-Seal in satin.
