Very nice Dave. I like the strip in the lid to match the spline and feet.What did you use to line the box? This is a project I have on my list for my S&W service revolver.

Will the inside is a spray in felt, I had gotten the hand blow gun and flock from rockler a few years ago for a jelwery box I made for a customer.Work pretty good. The paint on adhesive is colored to match the felt.

Great work. I want to try the spray in lining on a box someday when I get a-round-tiut. Please don’t let children near since I didn’t see a lock on the box. Remember, guns don’t kill people…

-- I'll get it done when I get a-round-tuit.
