My picture taking skills are still no better, my Blackberry is all I had available at the time.

I made this for a friend. The box is hickory with walnut splines, banding, handle and inlay. The inlay is the emblem of the 4th Infantry Division. The 4th ID was responsible for the capture of Saddam Hussien. A commerative gun was made in their honor, a SIG P229. This box will hold one of those guns. Interior block cut out is spanish cedar.

Finished with wipe on poly and several coats of wax.

Really nice! I forwarded a link to my son who has asked me to build him a box for his favorite pistol.

Wow i love the gun box it looks awesome, especially the 4th infantry emblem. I was in the 4th infantry division for seven years. I have several guns i might make a case for mine and put that emblem on it. Superb work.

Beautiful box for a Sig or any other pistol. My son has a 40. cal Taurus and a 9 mm Glock I think I’ll give it a try. I’m just worried about moisture from the wood, maybe a silica packet might help with that?

Thats pretty damn nice man! I do a lot of pistol cases myself. If you ever need to pad one a bit, you can pick up “egg crate” at Kmart. Go to the bedding section, I got a twin bed sized piece for 12 bucks. Was a lighter tan color, so I grabbed a pack of black Rit dye, two more bucks, got enough egg crate for 15 cases, top and bottom!

You know what the 4th ID patch is supposed to represent? Four Lieutenants pointing North.

I was attached to the 4ID for a while when I was a LT so I’m allowed to say that.

Nice work.

Mike, Moisture from the wood should not be a problem if it is normally dry enough for woodworking. The firearms should have a good grade of oil on it anyway. I would worry more about keeping up with normal care of it than keeping it in a wood box. After all, most firearms have a substantial amount of wood for their stock.

Excellent case. The Sig229 is all stainless, don’t worry about what little moisture may be present in the wood, baring extreme circumstances of course. My 229 never gets to a case, it’s too busy being carried.
