Museum & Other Exhibit
The "Golden Standard"
Naval Gun Carriage
|Texas Military Forces Museum
Camp Mabry - Austin, Texas is an official
museum of the Texas National Guard.
In 2012 I built a naval gun carriage (circa 1836) for the
museums operational gun tube that is a replica of the
“Golden Standard”—a 12 pounder brass gun captured at
the battle of San Jacinto.
After the "Golden Standard" was captured it was used on a ship
of the Texas Navy. The museum contracted me to come back to
create and build a new 15'X 15' naval ships bulkhead with mast
display within the museum for there new 2013 expansion. The
"Golden Standard" cannon carriage that I built here will also be
moved in and used in this new display. Please click on to
see the new 2013 "Naval Ships Display" that I had a blast
creating and enjoyed building for the
Texas Military Forces Museum.
