As with all my box projects, I like to make what I call “addendum” boxes, addendum because they are kind of like a foot note, even though a lot of work went into making these also. I use them as “presentation” boxes . It gives it a little bit of mystery when it comes time to present the primary project, a box with in a box sort of thing. These were made for my latest project, “Dad’s gun grips and display case”. The first box/chest you see is made from white pine, stained and finished with wipe on poly. It sports custom hammered iron strapping, reproduction nails, hand made leather strap handles, and a reproduction lock. The inside panels are covered in faux leather to prevent marring the gun case, and I branded the Texas star in the lid. The small finger joint box was made to house the old S&W gun grips. It’s made from white oak with a bottom panel made from eastern red cedar. I also wanted to upload another pic of the top of the gun case, because the photo I uploaded earlier is not that great. Although the entire lid is not in the frame, you can see the top inlays much clearer in this pic. Thanks for looking.
