My son came to me with a challenge: make a case for his flute and piccolo, but keep it the same size as his current flute case’s carrying case. Here is the result, and I kept it within his specs. 16¼ X 4½ X 2¼ made from walnut with brushed brass hinges and catch and finished with a couple coats of wipe on poly. The only thing left to do

Nice job, Brian. I used to like making specialized cases for tools and fixtures, but haven’t done many lately. It’s always nice to have a nice case for your prize possessions. Thanks for the post.

By the way, does your wife know you cut part of that table cloth for the lining in your case? :]

No, she actually bought a new one just for this case.

Nice work Brian… so… What was the only thing left to do?

Brian,

Did you rout out the lid? It looks like it is one solid piece.

Nice job!!

I love to see a challenge. I love a challange even more when it is a success!

I hope nothing rattles when you close the lid, nothing bends that shouldnt.

The case looks nicely done.

The “10 lbs in a 5 lb can” challenge. Nicely thought out and executed.

The top is one piece routed out.

I guess I posted this in the middle of a thought: that’s what I get for walking away while working on smething.

Then only thing left to do is line the lid with foam/felt to keep things in place while he is carrying it.

Thanks to all.

Nice looking case Brian. I bet your son has the best case amongst his peers. Thanks for sharing.
