    Made some displays...

    I picked up a few shadow boxes from Superstore and made some musketball displays. I used some styrofoam and carved out the proper forms so the balls are recessed. I then covered it with green felt and pressed the balls into place. I thought it came out pretty good. I am giving the four bullet display to my father in law for his birthday today. He is always very excited to see my finds and is as enthusiastic about ballistic lead as I am.

    Re: Made some displays...

    One step I forgot to mention: To keep the felt from puckering when pressing the balls into place cut small cross slits in the felt where you will be placing the musket or minie ball.

    Nice displays! I really like the green background.

    Kissing the FIL's butt will no doubt bring positive returns too! JK!

    Thanks for posting the pictures and HH!
    When I was younger I used to pray for a new bike.  Then I learned that God doesn't work that way so I stole a bike and prayed for forgiveness.
