+1 for what Chris said – that is some carving.

What did you use for the inside finish?

I hope that the pistol is at least half as nice as the case.

Very impressive! What kind of pistol is this designed for?

His pistol is a New Army (1858 Some call them).44 cap and ball, Remington, reproduction, made by Pietta. I made a place for his extra cylinder, powder flask, cap tin, bullet mold, and nipple wrench.

Incredible. The carving is so detailed, even in photos you want to reach out and touch the top. Very impressive.

Thanks for sharing.
