I'm trying to get some ideas on how to build and easy golf ball case/rack for a team project at work. I would like to use the least power tools as possible. If anyone has any advise or ideas, I would appreciate them.
You might want to make a distinction between which power tools to use and which to avoid. Since it's a work project, I'm assuming you want to avoid the use of power saws.
Is your work space an office, shop, small factory? Do you have the space to set up saw horses, and do you or your co-workers have various hand saws and other tools needed for cutting and sanding wood?
How many cases do you plan to make? What's the ventilation system like? I.e., are there going to be a few people sawing or dozens?
Power drills and screwdrivers could be more easily used at your work site and save a wealth of time, especially if you don't have the equipment to drill holes by hand (very slow and tedious!).
Roy Underhill is the expert on hand tools; all of his projects, some of which are extremely complex, are made by hand.
With that in mind, you could Google "golf ball rack, woodworking plans". I did and got a few hits with some decent looking racks.
I would avoid plans from Wood Magazine; the projects are often beautiful but they do tend to be more complex. Popular Woodworking used to have more usable plans which might be more suitable. I think there used to be a weekend woodworking magazine but I haven't seen it for years, which only means that it hasn't been in the bookstores I visit.
Sounds like an interesting project. Are you and your co-workers golfers, or are these projects for sale?
oh, i have no interest in golf ball.
