Beautiful hardware and all.

Love the wood selections. (Betting the case is surprisingly light). I’m going to check into the Incra jig.
Very nice work.

For Ocelot, boxers would also fit nicely. . .

3.5 lbs feels light to me for a case. Thanks.

That’s so nice! Carpathian elm is such a nice burl, too.

dustysawyer, it would be even less weight for the commandos.
