I made this case for my son the drummer. It holds 2 sets of sticks to bring to rehearsals or shows etc. Made of Walnut with Maple miter keys & a diamond plate top. Originally I was going to secure the lid with magnets but I set them too deep. They wouldn’t catch & I couldn’t dig them out without tearing up the 3/8” sides, so I used box clasps. I used a ring roll for the inside. Rounded over the top edges & corners for a less “boxy” look. Two coats of Danish oil & 3 coats of spray on satin to finish.
Thanks for looking. Dean

That’s pretty sweet! I like the contrast between the warmth of the wood and harsh industrial look of the diamond plate.

Nice work. Now that you have a case, you really need to turn him some cool sticks. Just have him give you a pair of his favorites (5B, or whatever) and you can copy them in an exotic wood or laminate some up for him.

That’s nice work, the miter keys add a nice detail to it.

Have your say...
