Tmax-The rifles sound like a great idea also-I found a website that sells the complete kits for about $750.00 (including the wood), now if I can find the hardware(barrel, and other metal) to see what the overhead cost would be. Thanks for the idea!
Brtech-I use to make jewelry boxes and stain them with an Ox blood red leather dye and they were gorgeous-made of Mahogany, but still a gorgeous deep blood red color. I do like the idea about the Walnut top too.
Thank you all for the ideas and the willingness to share them.
I found some more cherry today that I had culled a couple of months back-10” inch wide boards that were cupped like a horse shoe. I spent the day milling them into smaller boards that are now usable. Some of them had a little mottled figure in them. I also found some Hickory that was the same way-cupped, warped, split, and checked all over, but, it too is now usable lumber-smaller pieces but usable.
I also found some 1/4” inch thick Ambrosia Maple craft wood I had hid under my work bench that I had forgotten I had.

Today was good day!
