So I have been making loaders but just behind the scenes along with some other projects for some board members. I'm up to 89 loaders made and shipped out all over the country now.
I thought I'd post these projects up here since they have been both unique and challenging. Not to mention some really cool custom loaders.
These are the loaders. There is some great Hard Maple, Black Walnut, High Figure Maple and one of a kind Cocoabolo.
Here is the Thompson stand I did. By the members request I did the Colt and Thompson Logos in their true fonts and labeled it with his model and serial numbers as well. The stand is made from Black Walnut with the burnt lettering and red velvet at the contact points. Unfortunately the gun in the pictures is my Kahr and not the real '21 that lives on it now...

This is a chest for a M1918 30cal belt re-loader. For those of you not familiar this reloads the belts for the M1919 machine gun. A member sent me an original chest in beyond repair condition. I was able to salvage the original hardware and recreate the chest from new wood and matched oil paint colors. This was a blast to make and reverse engineer things from the past. As I write this though... I just got an email from the member I did this for and even with the what I though to be idiot proof packing job, the government proves again they can screw up even the most meaningless tasks, like delivering a box, and the U.S. post office managed to beat the hell out of this... Solution to follow...?
I plan to start making a new set of loaders here soon. If anybody wants something other than Hard Maple let me know.
