This shotgun case was made for a relative for his grandfather’s heirloom shotgun. Made from Oak and Walnut. The shotgun cutout was flocked.

I like your case. The bottom half, with a sliding glass or plastic cover would make a great looking shadow box to hang on the wall as a display case.

That is awesome! What did you use for the cutout that the shotgun fits into? What product did you use for the flocking? I’ve been wanting to build something along these lines for a bit and haven’t made the time.

Very nice. You did a super job on the entire project but I really like how the wood in the case complements the wood on the forearm and stock.

Very nice looking case. It appears to be a 12ga side by side. Still wanting one of those myself.
