Revolver Loading Stand

I've been meaning to post pics of this for ummmm, "some time". I bookmarked a thread "some time ago" that I was going to add it to but seeing as that thread is 3-1/2 years buried I'll leave it there. For reference:
http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/...=loading+stand

When my Father In Law (a WWII Veteran) passed away, I couldn't bring myself to order one of those $50-$80 prefab Memorial Flag display boxes (though they are a respectable way to preserve and display a Memorial Flag). No, he wasn't the kind of guy that would buy a "store-bought" anything, if he could make it in his shop. I had some nice old oak in my shop, so I plained it down, ran it through the shaper a few times & made a really nice display box for his flag. It's double sided, with glass & fully shaped edges on both sides, for the rare occasion that it is displayed in such a manner as both sides are visible.

I had a few scraps left over so I made a loading stand for my Remmie. I thought that the perspective would be right to photograph them together, but wow, the pistol dwarfs the display case:






Thanx for looking

clever

I have a right-angle loading stand that works well with all my revs. But I built it outta scrap and it looks like it.

Yours is elegant.

It looks very nice & quite useful, I've just never used one.
