Had an old table in the garage. It was so beat up, Goodwill wouldn’t take it. So I harvested it for wood to build a pistol case for my son for Christmas. Here is the table in various degrees of disassembly

Image

Image

Image

First step was to lay out the pistol and accessories to size the case. This is a S&W 629, with a 6” barrel.

Image

Then I measured, cut, mitered and assembled the sides of the case

Image

Next step was to cut the bottom and top to size. Since the original table was a veneered hardwood, each cut edge had to be re-veneered to cover the base wood. I used the table saw to skin some veneer from pieces of the table.

Image

Glued the veneer on to the cut edges of the sides and top. Attached the top with hinges and latches

Image

Image

Used some scrap wood to build some partitions for the pistol accessories

Image

Cut a piece of plywood to the shape of the main compartment. Used spray adhesive to attach foam to the plywood, and then carved out the foam to accept the revolver. Covered the foam in black velvet.

Image

Last step was to add an engraved plaque to the inside of the top.

Image

Here is the finished case with the pistol and accessories

Image

Image

My son opened this up this morning, and he loved his Christmas present from his popper!

44 mag vs 9 mm. LOL

Good job! At first, I thought you were going to build a hidden drawer into that table. :)

I have built boxes and presentation cases. They are a lot more work than you think.

Repurposing can be fun. I built a wine cellar and mini pantry out of an old dresser and the heavy pine frame of an old waterbed under the stairs of our split level
