  1. This cart was commissioned by a new shooter last fall. I really wasn’t planning on building anymore but he approached me a few times at the Escondido Bandidos matches and talked me into it. One of the reasons that I was intrigued with the potential build was the theme involved, Tex Willer. I knew that, given the chance, Double Diamond would come up with the perfect leather art work to make this one special and he did. I’ve been told that his leather work artistry is like putting makeup on a pretty woman and I truly believe that that’s a fitting description. The bin in the bottom of the chest will hold 10 loading strips of the type that Double Diamond builds or 5 of the other types made by different makers. Pull one out and go to the loading table and when you come back after the unload table stick the strip back where it came from and pull the next one out when you’re ready. Works very well. The narrower chest tray has a SG shell well that accepts a box of shells, just fold the flaps back and drop it in and when it’s empty lift out the box and drop another one in. There is also a soft sided ice chest and room for more SG shells and other match essentials in the bottom of the chest. The cart is built out of black walnut with through dovetail and sliding dovetail joinery and mortise and tenon joinery where needed. There is a hinge pin at the bottom and back of the cabinet interior that when pulled allows the cabinet to be easily removed. I used two coats of Danish oil and 6 coats of lacquer for the finish. The seats, chest handle liners and barrel liner are leather. The locking bar in the cabinet is held in place by rare earth magnets in the up and down position. You’ll notice below the holsters on the door is a fixture to hold the SG brush and swab.
  2. This gun cart was built for a shooter and his wife and they wanted it to reflect the Texas family ranching history by showing the various family cattle brands. My pard Trainwreck and his son did the laser layout and engraving and Double Diamond did all of the leatherwork. Notice the brands on both sides of the cabinet are branded on inlays. The lumber I used is African black limba. The steer skull drawing on the front of the chest is a drawing of a skull that was found on the family ranch a number of years ago and they wanted it included on the cart, it is lasered on an inlay also. Through dovetail and sliding dovetail joinery and mortise and tenons where needed were used. The trays feature an ammo tray with two SG shell box wells and room for R&P cartridges. Notice the finger notches on the tray dividers, all you have to do is fold the flaps back on a box of shells and drop it in the well and your all set. When the shells are gone lift up a tray and get another box of shells and exchange it for the empty box. Under the trays is an ammo strip bin that will hold 10 loaded or empty ammo loading strips. Pull a loaded one out shoot the stage and then lift the tray up and put the empty strip back where it came from and pull another loaded one for the next stage. There is also a small 6 pack soft sided cooler that fits in the bottom of the chest. On the inside of the cabinet door there are 2 sets of holsters and a SG mop and brush holder. The locking bar to keep the long guns in place is locked in place in the down position with a rare earth magnet and then another magnet holds it in the up position when your pulling your long guns or putting them away. The cabinet is held to the carriage with a hinge pin and is very easy to remove and reinstall.
