Made one up out of scrap I had around the shop.  Need to sand it up and get a finish on it....Hmmmmm, what to finish it in.  Only made it a 2 gun but I can upgrade it to 3 gun if needed.  Give me your thoughts on a finish.  Part of me wanted to try that Hammered finish??

Let me know what you think of my first try

Looks like you copied a professional box. Looks pretty good especially for first time box build.

I looked at several so those gave me some ideas.  I put in a anti slam screw in the lid so it would not blow over in the wind.  I also did something different for the drawer glide..Or not glide.  I didn't like the two pieces of wood some use to hold the drawer in.  Mine is more like a sliding dovetail but not a dovetail, I used a dado.  Works like a charm

I think I’m going to use a laminate to do the outside. Little more durable.

I made this one out of 3/8" marine plywood, piano hinge, old army blanket and a ammo box lid. I stained it with a walnut finish stain and then beat the heck out of it for the last 43 years. Must have some Timex in there somewhere also. I really did misuse it over the years. Ignore the Practical Shooting Assc. patch. Got my moneys worth out of Army surplus parts and glue. I made it tall enough for scoped pistols way back then.
