really nice project. gr8 way to recycle some very nice wood. I see the receiver is very happy. I like the way you changed the plans up a bit.

That is really neat! I like the reuse of old lumber. How did you do the acid etching on the plate?

Roger, Thanks for noticing that I changed the plan up a little. I’m not real fond of just using someone else’s plans. I like to make it a little mine if you know what I mean.

Timtimc, Thanks
I got the idea for the acid etched brass from Laney Shaughnessy (WoodJediNTraining) with A Simple Design of Ocala. and his youtube post on etching brass

Again thank everyone for looking at my work and any and all comments are welcome any time
