Topic tags/keywords: question maple walnut joining

Hi Jocks,
I’m finishing up a beautiful case and will be posting pictures soon but I have an issue with my next build. A guy wants me to make a cue case for a snooker cue. For those unfamiliar it is mostly a british billiards game played on an enormous table. This requires longer than standard American cues. I have been building wood cases for a few years now and other than them being heavy they have been ok and under 3’ long.
But I am worried about building a box around 46” long by 6” deep and 3.5” high. I am worried about warping. The sides will be 1/2” black walnut and the top and bottom will be 1/4” ambrosia maple. Surface hinges (4) and 4 latches along the front. Mitered corners with splines.
Has anyone ever tried making a box of this size?? There was a guy named Roger Taft that made a couple but he no longer has a web site and I can’t find a way to ask him.

I could use some advice!!

Thanks in advance!
