Show your range box
« on: September 14, 2017, 04:30:51 AM »
I'm looking to build a range box.I've searched and most of your guys' pics are on Photobucket so you can't see them anymore.

I have a couple ideas kicking about in my brain housing group but post some pics of your range box for some more ideas.

Thanks all.

Here's a link to a post from several years ago when I built my range box.  I restored the pictures that Photobucket is holding hostage.  http://americanlongrifles.org/forum/index.php?topic=4855

A recycled wood wine gift box.  I sanded off the inked lettering and removed the paper label, stained it a warm dark maple and gave it a coat or two of True Oil.  It's small compared to most range trunks others have but I like shooting from the bag mostly and the size keeps me from accumulating too many useless widgets.
I would happily post a picture but I keep it at the folks' place in PA and not at the apartment.
The best thing about these boxes is that someone has done all the hard work for you on the production line;we just get to fancy 'em up and make 'em our own.

I made mine out of an old ammo box, leather hinges and tossed an eagle off of an old flagplole I think, on the lid for looks.

Here's mine, the green one.  I picked it up at the CLA show this year and really like it.  God Bless,  Marc

This is mine.  It's done the job for 25 years.  It's good enough for who it's for.

This box began as a sewing box from Jo-ann's Fabric Store. I reinforced the bottom and corners and applied a stain to what was bare wood. I filled the space between the wood slats on the top.




The upper shelf is the top from an old, wooden 3 x 5 card holder.

I made this box about twenty years ago and it has served me well.  I laid out everything I absolutely needed for shooting from the bench and then built the box to hold only those items.  The wood is 1x12 pine and the outside dimensions are 11.25" wide, 11.25" deep and 12" tall excluding the risers on the bottom.
