I like shooting air guns. I like woodworking and woodturning. I decided to combine the two and this is what I came up with… a pellet box!

The wood is maple, turned on the lathe. It holds a whole tin (500 ct) of .177 cal pellets. I finished it with Deft spray on lacquer in satin sheen.

Here is a video of making this box.

Comments are always welcomed and thanks for looking!

There ya go! Remember we went through this about a year ago? By the way I just bought a mid – range pell rifle with a good scope and they really are great fun. J

Too cool. I to like plucking chipmunks in my backyard with my pellet gun.
Well done.

In my area we’ve been plagued by ‘coons. This is an established suburban ‘hood, and when it was bad they’d start wandering the streets and yards well before dusk. Groups of eight or ten or more. Plague, not an exaggeration. Pets were maimed. Birds’ nests emptied. Coon crap everywhere. Pellet rifles staunched the tide. I’m a gun-nut but never, ever hunt for sport. However, to protect my neighborhood the .177 is my tool.

Sorry fuigb, but you don’t reduce a population of racoons with a .177 air gun…....Traps by private and state trappers, then proper euthanization, transplanting or in more rural areas a .222 or 12ga. Now chipmunks, that is a different realm of fear all together!..... :-!
