Presentation Box for my Grandfathers Colt officers 38 special. This was used during WW1 by my Great grandfather/Grandfather and used during WW2 by my father.
So I had to create an authentic display box for it. Researched for pieces of the time, 1914 and this is the style that most were in.
Quarter sawn white oak, full panel top, floating bottom panel and joint splines.
I upgraded the padding (no foam available in 1914).
Not happy with the lock so I’ll see what I can find that’s more period.
