Have the big end about done. I didn’t like the big walnut blocks that I had on the stock side so I'm changing things a little. Also have four 20 rd cardboard repro vintage .45acp boxes coming. I’ll see if I can squeeze them in. Add a little color too.

It’s coming along, took a while for me to decide on how to do the upper but this is what I’ve come up with. Thought that I’d add my Savage, Got a few more blocks to secure and covering everything with felt. Going to add some snap straps to secure the Savage and 1911. The lid compresses against the upper to hold it tight.

Think that all my walnut inserts and straps are done and tomorrow I’ll start gluing the felt. I want green under the Savage and 1927 upper and brown under the 1911 and Thompson bbl. If I can find 6 magnets with counterbored holes in the center I want to inlet and screw them to the aluminum in the open space below the 1911. The felt will hide them. I will have a 1911 and Savage mag stuck to them sitting there. I didn’t like the  washers so I built a couple of 1 inch walnut discs to secure the ends of the straps. Letting the stain dry now.

Except for the felt on the backside of the top and a few loose pieces of the yellow line it’s done.

Except for the felt on the backside of the top and a few loose pieces of the yellow liner that are loose it’s done. But I’m still waiting for the stock slide.
