I finally finished a project I started this summer.
The first project was scrapped, bending wood is not an easy chore.

Man, nice job.
The hardware looks great.

I made it from some scrap red oak and cherry I had laying around.
I quess I should have called it a Penn/Indiana case. Styled after the Indiana, with a few mods that I wanted to included.

|Nice Case, but damn, bet it gets heavy!|
LOL, yeah, it is a tad on the heavy side. I certainly would not want to walk very far toting it, especially with the drums loaded.

That's a great build!! I'd think that it would be less bulky than the FBI style, and certainly holds a lot of good stuff, without over-crowding. In your photo, the covering looks grey. Is that really black?
Now you can flip open the latches and impress the babes. It kind of looks like a secret agent attache'.

Dang, I knew there was something I forgot! Now I have to build an even larger case to allow for the C drum. I think the next one may need small wheels.
I don't think I'll be making any more soon. It was a heck of a project for the first case I've ever built. I went out and bought a table saw especially for the project.
I think Greg asks around $800 for an Indiana style case, but don't quote me. After making one he is entitled to every penny of it as well.
I used nuts on the underside of the handle, the wood should give before the fixtures. I looked for a nice leather wrapped handle giving a more period appearance to it, but haven't found any in black at least.
The color seems to be a very dark gray. The outside dimensions are; 27.75" x 15.75" x 4.25".
