A shotgun display case that I made as a going away gift. Cabinet is made of red oak finished in min-wax early american stain with min-wax polyurethane. Emblems and engravings were done with an Epilog lasermark 40. I engraved both sides of the butt stock, barrell and both sides of the shotgun. The drawers were lined with brown suede with the back lined with green suede. The drawer pulls were made out of spent shotgun shells. This was a fun project and very well received.

Very nicely done! Too bad the shotgun is not as elegant as the case.

Good idea on the drawer pulls. Not very secure, though.
