I built this display case as a Christmas gift for my stepmom. The .410 was passed down from her father, it’s a beautiful piece of craftsmanship that deseved a special display. I shipped it out to her last week and she promptly emailed me pictures after placing the gun in it’s new home.

Nice. I hope your stepmother uses her fine O/U shotgun.

Just for the fun of it, I’ll show you my gun rack that I made this past summer. Keeping it simple, I took two slabs of red pine, with bark still attached and inserted maple pegs. I tilted the drill press table 5 degrees so that the pegs have a slight upward slant.

As you can probably surmise, I don’t have any use for new-fangled in-line muzzleloaders.

Great looking display box. I’m sure it will be appreciated.

Biowa, I like your idea for a gun rack too. I’ve got several BP rifles (mountain style) that would look good on one just like it. And lots of wood to build it from.

Great looking gun case.. Hope you don’t mind me using some of your ideas. I have a henry golden boy that needs a case and your design is ideal. What are the corner and center pieces made from? TLS
