Coolman 220/228 (Big Hat) Lantern Case
Here is the new Coolman 220/228 Lantern Case I made for Dr. Bruce and my original 220 case. The new case is made with an oak top, handles and base, oak stays and birch plywood with brass fixtures. The base is routered for the 6" dia. fount and the ventilator nut is secured by a hole in the lid. Inside there is a slot for extra mantles. It is unfinished and can be taken apart.

It will accommodate 220/228 B-K, 236, 237, 275, 635, 639 lanterns and perhaps others. This size could be made to fit a 500 stove by offsetting the routered circle and shorter of course. I have also designed a case for a 200/200A/242 Lantern and a 502 Stove (shorter). The 200 case could accommodate a 502 stove and heat drum.

Thanks for reviewing this,
Gary

Watch me paste this pathetic palooka with a powerful paralyzing perfect pachyderms percussion pitch.

That looks great! Is it stained or a clear lacquer to protect the wood? I would be scared getting it out in the wild with bare wood.

Fraggboy, Thanks. I was going to leave the finishing up to the buyer. I have not done my 220 case as yet, but probably a lite stain and polyurethane spray can or brush on top. It is put together with screws and can be taken apart if needed. The corner trim is pine.

I am going to polyurethane the case.  It is simply beautiful. 

It should fit many lantern models 220 & 228 B-K, 275, 635, 639, 237, 236, etc.

It is currently trapped in the USPS Warrendale PA.

Way cool. I was about to go POSTAL!
Bruce, I cut a 1-1/2" square X 1/2" thick felt with a hole punched in the middle that goes on the vent nut and really secures it in the box. I had the felt from my piano refurbishing days, so I don't know if it can be had that thick.

Here is the case with two coats of polyurethane varnish - satin finish.

I put some thread locker on the handle nuts.

This is a deluxe case.

Wow Bruce!  I didn't think those cases could look any nicer, but you've done an outstanding job with that polyurethane varnish.  That is simply gorgeous.

How much do they weigh empty?

I don't have an accurate way of weighting it. Using the bathroom scale, the 220 case is about 2 to 3lbs. The 228 a bit more probably, but Dr. Bruce has it. They are light.

Bruce, That looks great and I see you added a Coleman logo (Coolman). I like how the birch ply got richer and darker. Is that a 228D or?
