    Much credit is due to FAAWRENCHBENDER (Greg) for donating the mag body, the wood is a piece of oak scrap I lifted from the job site. It need a refinish, you can see two holes drilled there but otherwise the wood would be perfect.

    Clearance cut at the front of the base to slip over the screw

    Looks cool. You can always fill in the holes before you refinish the wood.

    The base pad really makes it look great. Better than the empty well resting on the wood. Good job 230!

    The base pad made it a breeze to mount, I ended up fortunate in that way, too.

    Pretty clever, I like it! I agree, it certainly is more eye-catching than just an empty magazine well on a board.

    This one makes you go, "Wait...how'd they do that?" :lol:
