This was my first “real” woodworking project. The design is my own as is the boy in the picture :) There is a piece of bamboo (cut from an old cracked fishing rod that was left behind in my basement) that comes out of the side of the box and goes into the muzzle of the pistol. The wedge allows for quick and easy placement and removal and gravity wedges the gun in so it’s almost impossible to fall out. I made this quite a bit deeper than I should have thinking I would store other stuff in there but I never do. Also, I had no clue whatsoever how to make a picture frame so I cut the oak to size, rabbited it, and screwed a piece of 1/4” plywood on the back to hold the picture in. Certainly unconventional but it does give good support for the magnet catch. This was a great project to teach myself a lot of common WW techniques.
