Made from Marine ply, beech timber from Ikea bed slats, hardware from Bunnies, Felt from Spotlight and foam from Clark rubber. Painted with Hammertone grey.
Foam is glued in, but removable fairly easily if gets damaged.

From previous trips away it was apparent that careful packing of my gear was not going to happen, so I decided to make some cases. I have been keeping an eye out
for leather couches in roadside collection, that I may cover over the painted exterior.

Nice work Rob! It's good making your own gear and it most certainly is a great idea to protect your bows and arras when travelling. Thanks for sharing your builds with us.

Nice workmanship on the cases, they should provide ample protection for the bow and arrows.
"And you must not stick for a groat or twelvepence more than another man would give, if it be a good bow.
For a good bow twice paid for, is better than an ill bow once broken.
