    Newby needs direction

    Good afternoon all.
    Thanks for the add to the group.
    I have a good friend who is an avid collector of Military weapons who recently had a serious medical event. He is recovering well but asked for my help with something. He has a large collection of Enfield Riflesicon and wants my help in building a transit box.

    He has told me it's a Chest - No.4 Mk.1 T..its mostly greek to me but if I can help him I want to. I have been able to goggle a lot of information on the chest but not basic stuff like, what wood is it made from, is it multiple pieces to make a side or one piece.
    I see the top appears to be 3 parts...but again..what wood.

    It's this sort of thing I am trying to find out. If anyone could direct me to a source or two I would greatly appreciate it.

    thanks in advance.

    This should help;
    https://www.milsurps.com/content.php...S.A.-No.15-Mk1

    Different counties used different types of wood but pine is most common, and depending on the width of boards on hand I have seen 1-3 boards to make a top or side.

    If you need hardware PM stencollector on CGN, he had a number of Bren cases that he was scrapping due to their condition but the hinges and latches work.

    I thought he was on here but appears not.
