Pistol Display Case

My goal in designing this beautifully handcrafted case was for it to become your most treasured keepsake. As a classically trained furniture maker, I use old world techniques to craft each case to order. Sixteen tenons are used to construct the carcass of the case. No detail is overlooked including hand carved legs, chamfered edges, glass top, cove molding, and fully mortised concealed high quality SOSS hinges. Available in your favorite species of hand selected timber- Walnut, Cherry, Antiqued Cherry, Rift sawn White Oak, Ebonized Riftsawn White Oak, Maple or Sapele Mahogany. I use solid select hardwoods and obsess over tone and grain selection. My display cases are never stained, the beautiful tone and grain produced by Mother Nature takes center stage! Your case receives several coats of a hand rubbed oil and wax finish which protects and spotlights the natural beauty of the wood grain. The precise dimensions of your pistol are used to craft an inlay. When the inlay is perfected, your pistol “nests” inside the display case on top of finely padded velvet in your choice of black, blue or red. The bottom of each case can be engraved with your name and badge number/military service number or any message of your choice.

Contact me today to commission your display case – $500. A beautifully crafted nickel plated locking mechanism with “old world” key is available for an additional $100. 

I am happy to apply a 20% discount to Law Enforcement and US. Military personnel. 

Your choice of one item (magazine, badge, ribbon, challenge coin etc) can be mortised into the insert to complement your pistol.
Exterior measurements are 12 5/8” L x 9 3/8” D x 4 1/4” H .

(This case is for long term storage and display purposes only- your firearm must be stored with magazine empty and no round in the chamber.)
