I took some pics during that process and I'll go through them and post them
in the next day or two. I was a first timer at this as well. I'll explain the process when I post the pics but I'll tell ya, using crushed velvet, had an unexpected benefit. Camouflage! Inevitably, I ended up with a sliver of wood showing here and there where the material ended up being just that much short. So I simply cut a sliver of material and placed it with tweezers to fill before placing the main piece. You literally have to get your nose in the box to see it
I was pretty surprised that the material turned out as well as it did. That was the part I was worried about as well. Salvador's case above is felt and has NO tolerance for any goofs.
What kinda pistol you gonna case?
