I just wasn't happy with any of the recurve bow cases that were available so I decided I would go ahead and make my own. OK I admit it, even if I could have found one I probably would still make my own. Admittedly this is not exactly top of the line but I see a case as being utilitarian and keeping the contents from being damaged is it's role. So I didn't want to make it too nice.
This is what I came up with:
This is what I used and how I made it. The sides are 1/2" plywood and the top and bottom is 3/16 Lauan Plywood. The lauan is a bit wavy and it shows up in the finishing but it was in-expensive. I used standard tongue and groove joints all glued together. Latches and piano hinge came from McMaster Car. The handle is a piece of leather wrapped around a piece of PVC pipe. I constructed the complete box fully enclosed. I then cut it in half using a table saw. The front corners have an aluminum L-Channel to strengthen the lid and to ensure it aligns properly. Feel free to ask questions I'm happy to help anyone interested in building their own.
