Here are a few pictures of the gun cart that I finished. The gun cart is the one that I built for the Rebuild Cajon raffle winner. He wanted six long gun capacity, revolver storage in the chest and a collapsible shelf on the back of the cabinet. He also wanted the chest high enough to comfortably sit on with gun leather on. The lumber is African black limba and the leatherwork was all done by Double Diamond out of Escondido, Ca. The winner came up with the ideas and artwork that DD used to build the medallion on the crest of the cabinet and on the front of the chest. I tried using a rugged gear type revolver holder in the bottom of the chest but really didn’t like it so I came up with the holster idea. I made a couple of shelves before I got this one right. The shelf is very sturdy and will hold up to cap and ball cylinder loading and with the push of a couple of levers it folds down out of the way. I installed rare earth magnets to hold the shelf against the cabinet in the down position so that it wouldn’t swing out while being pushed, it works really well. The joinery is all through or sliding dovetails and mortise and tenon joinery where required. I installed ebony Diamond pegs in the spokes to dress it up a bit and also covered the shotgun brass, that I use in bolt mounting holes with some buffalo nickel themed antique brass buttons.
