Came out pretty good. He should be happy. He can go to the range in style, now!
Three coats of 50/50 Dark Walnut Watco and Marine Varnish. Followed by three coats of straight marine varnish. All rubbed out with Scotch Brite pads, Maroon through white. Finally a coat of Trewax.
Foam cover inside is Denim.
Thanks for looking.

That is absolutely beautiful. Well done. He will definitely be the talk of the range when he comes in carring that. Nice craftsmanship.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments.
Turpin, it’s on it’s way. :-)
Hi Eddy. How’s it going down there?
Jeff, borrow away, old buddy.
Paul, I chickened out on the wooden hinges. Long story.
Next one, for sure.
