I’ve been drooling over cases at joystick vault, and I think I’m sold on making another stick completely from scratch. I’ll soon be starting a stick with a case I bought from sillypuddy (Thanks Joe!), but seeing these works of art is inspiring enough to make me at least look for classes.
I have a couple of questions though:
Is this work possible to do in a garage, given the right equipment? Would I have to go to a woodworking shop in order to complete this work, or could I get the tools from a Home Depot or a similar place?
What are the critical skills I’ll need to make my own case? I’ve found a school near me, and this is the set of courses they offer currently: http://www.woodcraft.com/EducationClasses.aspx?StoreID=101
Anything to point me in the right direction would be great.
