It’s been a while since I posted anything, so I thought I would and maybe get some feed back on some of the wood I used. I have no idea what some of it is.
I took up another hobby….like I really needed another one, but I went to a customer appreciation day at Schrader’s Sporting Clay’s in Maryland and shot a couple of rounds… Loved it! Well, I’ve taken up shooting clays and I figured I needed a box to carry my shells and stuff in. Well, I had started the bigger box to give away, but my wife didn’t want me to give it away, so I put it to good use. Well, I needed a box for my shooting glasses because I didn’t want them to get all scratched up… and well, I had to have a box for my chokes.
My work is a little rough, but very functional. All the pieces are made out of scrap wood. I have no idea what the wood for the handle is, I used the same wood to make the two smaller boxes too. It all came out of a standard pallet that I found in the pile. I really like the grain and figure, but have no idea what it is. Anyone? Is it Sycamore or Lacewood?
What about the body of the large box? I have no idea what it is either. I think it might be redwood. I found it scabbed on to another skid or something…again, I thought it looked different so I grabbed it. Maybe Mahogany? The bottom of the box is made out of uhhhhh accidentally spalted maple. The handle risers are made out of clear maple ( I think) with a through mortise for the handle and then I pinned it with an oak dowel.
Very functional. It holds all my gear and enough shells for 100 rounds.
Thanks for looking
