Thought you might like to see this project In progress. I took a flat wear box, stripped the innards from it. Relined it with red felt and use it to make a cap and ball revolver display box. Iíve got a couple of Dragoons or could use two Remington

Rick,

Looks good to me so far! If you are open to a suggestion, if it was mine I would make better use of the available interior space. (You can kick me now in advance!)

Regards,

Jim

Hope you are on the mend. Sounds like big trouble to me!

That doesn't sound like fun at all! Nothing worse than having the drain backed up.

 Hope you're back to 100% soon.
