So, recently I treated myself with a new handgun. It’s sized a little differently from my old one, which brings me to the current project I’m working on. A few years ago, I made a wooden box to hold my everyday carry or EDC as cool people say. But my new handgun doesn’t fit in that box. So I’m making a new one to hold my new EDC pistol. Make sure you check out my full video below to see the complete build!
While I was planning out my new box, I decided I wanted it to make it more like a desk organizer than my old one was. I personally have a lot of crap on my desk I need to clear away. So I modeled the size of my box over how much junk it could fit.
Just as I did with the last build, I traced the outline of my gun with a pencil. Then, I grabbed my bandsaw and made some cuts! After I finished gluing up the seam, it was time to pretty up the box.
Some mistakes and goofs were made, but that’s all part of the fun! Once I got past them, I got down to carving out the box. I went for a natural look that followed the grain of the wood. I kind of made some stuff up as I went, but that’s what made this build so fun.
Don’t forget to check out the entire building process in my video! You’ll want to see it with your own eyes.
