Finished My Pistol Case
 
This is how I've been keeping sane these past few weeks, not working and all..
It's made of red oak and walnut, stained with Minwax Red Mohogany coated in 4 coats of Amber Shellac and 2 coats of Clear Shellac..... And I don't know why but the stain looks really uneaven in the pictures. Looks great in person though I'm super happy with the way it came out!

Also, based off another design so dont be surprized if you see another just like it elsewhere.:D

That is an awesome case. I wanted to make one like this to give my dad sometime. I like woodworking but I'm not super experienced in it.

Thanks man:thumbsup: 75% of making things like this is about the tools you have access to. If you have a good table saw, router, and mitre saw it makes aaaalllllll the difference
