Someone asked me to make a small box in which to store and carry the bullets (slugs, balls, shells???) for his muzzle-loading rifle. The bullets are stored inside these plastic tubes until used, and the box can hold 50 tubes. The bottom is covered with a 5mm thick cork sheet (gasket from the auto shop) to prevent moisture damage to the box when placed on damp/wet grass or soil. The brass handle and hasp lock was added for obvious reasons. The box is from African Rosewood and the trim is Yellowwood.

Thank you for looking at my project.

Very nice box.
Can you explain why cork is better then bare wood?
