    Recently got a 1911 specifically for my son and it didn’t come with a box which wasn’t a deal breaker to me. I’d like to get a presentation box made for it and need ideas. Didn’t know if anyone has ever had anything like this made custom for one of their pistols. All I know is I want his name or initials engraved in the Lid.

    he’s only one right now so it will be quite a few years till he even gets this pistol. Just want it to be in something special for when he does get it.

    I’d build a presentation box myself. Maybe inlay his initials in the top. Lined interior.

    If he is 1 now it sounds like you have plenty time to get going. I bet he would love anything you build way more then something you buy.

    I’m available for adoption.

    wondering about a large cigar box. The ones that are all wood.

    Can always just buy a box too.

    You can buy a properly sized wooden box at Hobby Lobby. Line it with a foam lining, stain it, have his initials or name or whatever made on a nice brass plate from any place that does that sort of thing (I use Yukon Trophy) and present it at the right time.

    My best friend (essentially my child’s uncle) is a woodworker down there in OKC so we are gonna put some ideas together and I’ll go down and help him build it.
