Shooting box made from leftovers.
The top is a raised panel of pine. The sides are cedar with G&G style box joints. The gun cradle is poplar.
This was a practice piece to learn G&G box joints.
The gun cradles slide in behind the handles.
The raised panel slides open like a pencil box, the only drawback is that he box cannot be opened when the gun cradles are in place.
The finish is brushed on amber shellac, it gives the wood a nice antique appearance. I really hated using the shellac it would run and puddle over every corner, it was extremely hard to use and I doubt that I will use it again.
The brand is my family’s cattle brand “Bar Lazy U” it was burned in with a real branding iron that we use on cows.
The rifle is a Remington 03-A3 .30-06.
