Made this for a command chief E9 who was leaving. I’m tired of seeing the same ol’ gun barrel gift, so I tried it out. At first it looked a bit like a casket, but with the pieces attached, it turned out good.

First time using Curly maple, but I love it. I used mahogany for the trim on the top and bottom plates, and used bloodwood for the nuts that house 2 coins and also for the tail flashes. Used walnut for the impossible wrench and sandwiched a piece of it between two maples for the barrel holder.

Beautiful work. I really like the way you used the different woods. I am sure this is something that will be proudly displayed for years to come.
