Made a box out of sassafras and cherry to hold a revolver and some ammo. It was all stored in various plastic bags and boxes and I wanted to get it better organized. It aint a custom job by any means but it does what it’s supposed to do. As shown in the pics, it weighs a lot….but carries well. Thanks for the looks and comments.

It’s a slow, rainy Sunday here in Vuh-Gin-Ya. LOL

Hot and dry here. Sitting in sun at show. Good looking box.

Nice box for that gun. The revolver looks familiar. Is it a single action and does it say The American on it? Does it have an open section where you load it -with no cover so the bullets could drop out if you cycle it while pointing up?
I have one of those somewhere and the back looks just like that one.

Wish it would rain here.

Nice box. Im moving soon. If I drop off my clothes with you in some black plastic bags can I expect an armoire?

Very nice. I guess needing a screwdriver to get it open is sort of a safety feature which works nicely.
