Default A wooden breech for an iron chamber

This XV century rought iron falconet chamber has already been shown here.
It is presently laying on the lower shelf of my TV set stand, so i watch it a good couple hours per day.
As time went on, i wouldn't cease thinking abut its 'naked' situation, standing by its own on a little two forked base.
So i thought i would replicate the breech section of a falconet, in a stylized manner ... made of mahogany wood.
You may find this an awkward solution, but it brings some cosiness to the lonely chamber, anyway .
Having failed the calculations to allow for reasonable space in the back of the breech, to lodge the chamber flat wedge, i decided to minimize the problem by using a cilindrical device instread ... the front section of an old muzzle loading firearm ramrod .
