American Shoulder Cartridge Box by Manfred Schmitz

Inspired from the book, Collector's Illusrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution, I made this American Shoulder Cartridge Box. I use calfskin for the box, an older linen strap, two handforged buckles also the vent pick and brush is made by myself. For the wooden block I used  ash-tree. The leather box is all hand sewn with linen thread, in the bottom of the box is a tray for supplies and tools.
