The oldest son needed a travel case for his xbox,
so i thought i would punch one out today.
i started with a full size wine crate. i wanted the fit to be somewhat tight so i cut off 5 inches from the length.
after trimming down i reassembled with glue and better fasteners.
i added an internal framework for strength and to act as a frame for the 1" foam cello foam
(this is a stiffer cushion).
there is an external frame i added too for more interest.
on the top i added some flash to personalize his case.
the fit is nice and tight. the lower level is for his console and the power supply.
the hinged & padded stop allows room on the top for his final cords, controller and some games on top.
not as light as a cardboard box but still very light.
wine crates themselves are surprising low in weight.
mac was happy with his new case. i am very grateful that he doesn't mind my "cobble" style.
