Got asked to make a going away plaque for our boss. Made it out of walnut and with a F-15 gun barrel. Didn’t turn out too bad and got asked to make 3 more.

Nice job. What technique did you use to paint the barrel? Never saw a painted barrel but I really like it.

I can’t take credit for the paint. The metals technology guys took care of that
