Girlfriend built me a Mosin Crate Coffee Table

She's been working on my Christmas present since late Sept. Every time I've been over there I get a "don't go around back!" so I've been in quite some suspense since then. She's been all over North Carolina picking up pieces to it, but wouldn't tell me any details, so I just smile sweetly.

So today I went over there to finally find out what I was getting. I got quite a surprise when I saw the big green crate with glass top, PLUS the interior lighting like the one I saw a few months ago over on the AIMsurplus blogs.

Here she is with her new MkII 22/45! I also got her a 4Sevens Preon P2, which we're all really impressed with.

The Grenade legs are a really creative touch.

She could sell a bunch of those tables at a Man Cave store.

The table is kinda ugly, and the grenade feet tacky, and it just screams. Russian. Truly wish I had one! That's a keeper.

That is a beautiful table and woman, you're a lucky man.

My girl knitted me a cowl. She also made me a paracord key ring, and a paracord strap for my mandolin. The mandolin strap is beautiful. She got me a nice fleece and some food and other stuff too.

She also got to show off the bear rug she just got back from the taxidermist from the bear she killed last year!

That is awesome and she even looks like a keeper! Congrats.

Hope you can get her a ring soon.

I wonder how many times she visited Pintrest?

She had a little help from her dad but she did most of the work. The way she told me about the table was to sit me down in the house with a stack of photos that reviewed our first year together(got together in Nov. of '11). Then the pics went into her sanding, painting, cutting, polyurethaning, and rebuilding the lid to the crate. Then she got me up and we walked out back to the finished product.

Definitely going to be keeping her forever. Gotta come up with a creative ring though. She is into practical stuff(not a jewelry girl - would rather put money on a few hundred acres than a silly sparkling diamond ring), so I may need some suggestions on something cool to turn into a ring. Maybe like the front sight hood of a Mosin or the inner race of a ball bearing?????

She bought me an 1895 Nagant revolver for my 21st birthday in August, so I think I'm going to put that, a bunch of spent shells, and my Austrian pot helmet in the bottom in addition to anything else cool and rugged I can think of. Probably pick up a few AK bayos, some f1 frag grenades and maybe a half gallon of ruski liquid heat for giggles.
