I was looking around for a bow case for my recurve bow and could not find one I like. I did quite a bit of research on the soft cases and the hard ones and came to the conclusion that the soft cases are overpriced, the hard ones are mostly for Compound bows. I am sure you all know what I mean especially if you are trying to find one that has separate compartments for the limbs and riser. At one point I had even tried to outfit a baseball kit bag, but was unhappy with the amount of protection it brings.
So after talking to my friend Drew, who is a very good handyman, I decided to build my own bow case. It was a very simple and unambitious project. Just a basic wooden case on the outside and stryrofoam inside. My main concerns while building it was how I am going to cut stryofoam using a knife, where to find long pieces of styrofoam from the hobby shops and how to get the box to sit and close well together.
Well, its was a hot summer in Arizona and I needed something to do while I was indoors so here are some pics of the box. Its an especially good idea if you have kids and want to introduce them to wood working and working with simple tools. Hope U all like it.
