This project was commissioned by a gentleman whose son was killed in Afghanistan. The son had been collecting military rifles and needed a M1 Garand to finish the collection. The father completed the collection and will display it in this case.
Our sincerest condolences on the loss of this fine young U.S. Marine.
The primary wood used is American Cherry, stained with Minwax Cherrywood Gel Stain, then finished with multiple coats of wipe-on varnish. The rifle mounts and door stops are made from Jatoba – Brazillian Cherry – and are finished with multiple coats of wipe-on varnish, then polished using Tripoli, then White Diamond compounds, followed by Carnauba wax.
