HIDDEN Compartment Catch All Box

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!
