This was a fun project! I decided to make a nice display box to go in my gun cabinet. I used oak to make the box and lined the inside with velvet. When I finished assembling the box it looked far to plain so I decided to burn the S&W logo onto the lid. It turned out really great cant wait to do another.

great box. Since I’m two months into waiting on my gun permit I figure I’ve got a little time to build one too. Thanks for the inspiration
