Here is my version of a gunning and gun cleaning box. Saw them on the Orvis site for about $495.00 and like every other woodworker said, heck I can build it better and cheaper. Boxes are solid cherry with dovetail spines on the corners. The tray in the back lifts out and the gun supports. Storage for cleaning supplies and rods. Upgraded on the handles with solid brass spring loaded and locking hasps. The hinges are Jewelry box stop hinges. All from Rockler. Danish oil finish and multiple coats of poly semi gloss thinned to 50%. I routered their names in the covers with my cnc and included an inlay. One is a avid duck hunter the other a Deputy Sheriff. The lab is black walnut and the badge replica is maple
Christmas presents for my two son-in-laws. They are not worthy and they already have my daughters ;-)
