Ever since I posted the original Gunsmith Box on my website, it has been very popular. I get emails inquiring about price, etc., at least once a week. And as expected most of them don’t email me back once they hear the price. And once in a while I get a request for one of these boxes NOW… “my dads birthday is next week” etc.
Well a few months ago I finally had someone from Texas who understood what goes into a custom project like this, was willing to wait, and agreed to my price. This represents my FIRST ONLINE SALE!!! The agreement was that I would have it shipped to her by Christmas for her husband’s gift.
I decided to take the opportunity to make a miniature production run, and made three of these boxes at once. That way I would have two in “stock” if anybody needs one right away. The first got sent to Texas and the other two are currently on consignment at a local firearms dealer. The photos in the gallery (above) show one of the “stock” boxes, which features a Mallard duck and some reeds inlayed into the top. My client in Texas requested a monogram letter “C” on the lid for her husband’s box. The photos of that box are shown in the blog.
