This is a simple .22 pistol box made of QS Sycamore, Walnut and Cherry. Constructed using a technique similar to these with brass rods used for the hinge pins.

Nice job and like the way you Inlayed for the pistol, cylinder, cylinder rod and some ammo. Wood selection looks great.

Just curious; what is the make model etc on the revolver? Is it single or double action?

I have an American Heritage 22 that is 2 calibers, 22 and 22 Magnum. You switch cylinders to change. Single action—9” barrel.

More accurate than I am. USA made too boot!

Nice, I always like to see QS Sycamore show up in projects. It is such a beautiful wood.

Nice job on the pistol box. Love the QS Sycamore. I have that same pistol and have worn the cogs off the cylinder where it won’t advance but it has had a lot of rounds through it.

I have an old WWI (yes the First World War) Smith and Wesson 38 Special Service Revolver that belonged to my Great Grandfather that needs a home like this for storage. That is a very nice box you have made there and it does great justice to the fine firearm that you have there.

Shoot, that’s a nice box ! I made something similar years ago for a Model 53 S&W – not quite as nicely made though.
