Project Information

This is a gun case I made for my son. It was my 1st woodworking project and it took me about 6 months (I'm slow). It's made from African Cherry (Makore). My local wood dealer had only 2 boards left and said it was the last he was going to buy. I thought the wood looked really nice so I bought the 2 boards. He said it would irritate the lungs and sinuses when working with it and I saw what he meant when I started this project MAN!.

Hi Cobbler,

This is an excellent gun case. I have never had a chance to work with makore but it is a beautiful wood.

How did you finish the case?

Nuttin wrong with slow as long as the final product turns out like this. A great gift for a son, something he will always treasure.

Please share, what's under the velvet lining?

Thanks for everyones comments.
The finish is just a couple of coats of MINWAX ''Cherry'' stain and
then 3 coats of clear satin poly. 0000 wool between coats

The velvet is glued to foam rubber with spray upholstry glue.
