This is my first box ever. I built it for my brother to the exact dimensions of his pistol. I looked for high density foam to mold to the gun, clip and a few bullets, but could find any locally. Ended up finishing the inside of the box with some faux tooled leather from the local hobby store.
The box is made out of Cocobolo and Bird’s Eye Maple (including the splines). I matched the grain of the Cocobolo all the way around the box. I also book matched the bottom. What beautiful wood! I was expecting the Bird’s Eye Maple to have a 3D effect and be the star of the project, but the Cocobolo is way more beautiful!
The entire project is sanded to 400 grit and finished with Walnut oil. I can’t wait to build the next one!
