As I was packing up my house, office and shop to move, I realized that my Fender Stratocaster guitar didn’t have a hard case. Replacement cases are pretty cheap, but since I’m me, I decided to make my own.
A lot of lightweight cases are made from cardboard, so this one (made out of plywood) is a bit stronger, although it’s still not meant to be a flight case. I tacked together the plywood and wrapped the entire thing in orange Tolex. The inside is made from upholstery foam covered in velvet to keep the guitar secure on the inside without worrying of scratching it. To protect the outside, I added all black hardware (corner protectors, latches, handle, hinges).
The project is very easy (although a little messy due to the amount of spray adhesive) and anyone can pull it off with minimal tools.
