I just finished this project using a modified Tool Box plan from Rockler (#40519). I simply removed one of the 3 drawers and increased the depth of the top compartment.
It is a little heavy for my taste so I am working on a lighter version that would be easier to carry around.

That is a great idea! Nice job. I may have to build a similar one for a buddy of mine that I buy my guns from.

Great looking project and great shooting accessory—very nicely done.

Very nicely done. I want to make something similar to keep my pistol repair/cleaning tools in, but am a little stymied with construction of the drawers. I wanted to use 10” full extension metal drawer slides, but can’t quite figure out in my mind’s eye how to install the slides after the box is built. It appears you used dovetail slides, but how do you keep the drawer from sliding out if the box is tipped?

Thanks for the comments.
Yes, Winchester 94. I bought it about 30+ years ago for a fraction of what it is worth today (Wow! Prices of guns have gone up!)

Don, There is nothing to keep the drawers from sliding out if tipped over. I only used square dowels for drawer slides. There is a cover for the front that locks when the lid is closed (spring pins). This keeps the drawers in when carried.
