This cypress gun case was a commissioned piece which would eventually display an antique rifle and an antique pistol.
the cypress was harvested from several sinker logs in south LA and milled to make the outside frame moulding.

Very nice! The wood looks beautiful. I particularly like the chevron pattern of the back. I helps the rifle and sword to stand proud.
