Shotgun Match Case

Match box made from a 12G shotgun shell, you need two used shells, carefully warm the end of one over a candle flame untikl the cap comes off, the other trim the plastic down to just below the crimps and well that really is it, put your matches in the case, put the cap on from the other shell and you are good to go, there are normally loads of empty shells laying around the woods from shoots, so why not put some of the rubbish to good use?.


  1. I carry one of these with me daily. I use strike anywhere matches so I used a hacksaw to cut shallow grooves that run parallel to each other that act as a striking surface. Great post as per usual!
