This box was commissioned for a young lady who is in a historic shooting club. The box is made from walnut with keys of maple and padauk. The peacemaker inlay is maple and wenge. And the bullet lift is made of padauk.
I did this one twice. The lid started out at 7/8 of an inch. For some reason I left it thinker than I normally would. I did the inlay and was not happy with it. So I went back and planned it to 3/4 of an inch and started over. I am much happier this go around. While I did miss my deadline, I refuse to sale something I am not happy with. While my client was happy with the first “draft”, after seeing these pictures, he was very happy that I went back and made the changes. Luckily this will be a Christmas present, so being a little late was acceptable.
Thanks for taking a look, and all comments are welcome. I hope everyone has been well while I have been away.
