A good friend of mine collects Coleman lanterns. This one was made in 1945 and he asked me to build a show box for it. So I came up with this.

Very nice box and lantern. That one’s a classic. To avoid sideways pictures, always take them in landscape orientation the lumberjocks site isn’t smart enough to handle portrait mode.

Thank you, It was driving me crazy that the pictures were coming out like that.

Mat,
I used MinWax red mahogany with MinWax tongue oil finish. I was going for an antique look to match the age of the lantern.

Very nice. The trick is to keep the pump up for sideways operation! Lol

I like the drawer and how the front door covers it.

Just an aside: did you know you can get a radiation burn (thorium I think) from a new Coleman lamp filiment bag? The wood in the drawer will stop any radiation. Just don’t carry the filiments in your pocket.

Is that glass or lexan?
