Good morning ladies and gentlemen, my name is nick white. I am seeking the help of anyone interested (ideally in michigan) in helping me make a wall mount gun case for one of my buddies that I served with in Afghanistan. He is an amputee and I would love.to hook him up. He has spoken numerous times about this specific gun case that he wants but cannot find anywhere to get it. If anyone is interested in helping me out and surprise him, I will be driving to.Nebraska on early june.for a wedding and would present the gift to him then. If you are willing and able to help out please let me know. It would be awesome !! Thanks guys.

Nick White

Nick, I wish I had the talent to make this for your buddy, sadly my talent isn’t close to what is needed. I will post this thread on the Southeast Michigan Woodworkers Guild site and maybe one of those guys could help.
Good Luck,
John In Michigan

Nick what weapon is he wanting it built for, do you have dimensions? Do you know what the five things in the lower left of the case are? I might be able to help you out.

Jerry, I do not have exact dimensions. However it would be used to hold an ar-15 style rifle. So roughly a good size for the box would be 42”x21” by maybe 4 or 5” deep? As far as what is in the bottom left corner I am not 100% sure. But maybe a couple shelves or something to hold an extra mag and maybe a k-bar would be pretty awesome. Idk if you are able to or know someone that could do a paintjob? But I am excited to see what the possibilities are with this. Thanks for your feedback. Nick white

We can do this, do you know someone who could paint the flag? I’m for crap with that but can handle the box. I’ll find an ar for measurements for brackets.

Awesome! I am pretty confident that I can find someone that can do the painting. Im very interested to find out how much this may cost. If you would like to email me you can also do that at nick.03xx@gmail.com. this is exciting! And Isee that you are retired from the army which makes this even more unique. Looking fforward to hearing back more from you jerry!

Nick for some reason I am unable to return your emails, they are “undeliverable” . I estimate $70 for the frame painted in black. Contact me by email millej7@yahoo.com
