This is the most recent gift I have built for one of my good friends that was leaving us. He is moving on to Marine Corps Recruiter School and in turn upon graduation be responsible for getting the fine Americans into the United States Marine Corps. As a former Drill Instructor I can say we can’t make them if they don’t send them. So he is off to bigger and better things.
Anyway, this was also for an ammo tech guy so we made an ammo can. Seems fitting, right?
I tried to start a blog on this project and did not spend enough time following through with it. I would like to have documented more of my progress then I did, which was really not much.
This ammo can was made out of paduak and has cherry splines in the joints. It is fully functional. It has solid brass metal for what could not be wood and it also gives him something to shine. Marines love shining brass. Desert Marpat utilities were used for the bottom of the ammo can as with the first one.
Please excuse the dates on the photos as my photograph capturing device is not calibrated as it should be.
Questions and comments are more than welcome.
