Rifle/hand gun cabinet

Editor's Choice - Mar 16, 2015

Where do I start..lol

I’ve been building this cabinet since Aug. It’s made of Ash mostly, Oak, some Maple and some Hickory. It will hold 33 rifles and over 4 hand guns. It’s 7’ tall and 5’ wide and 30" deep. The drawers on the bottom hold shells and behind the drawer’s with the felt for hand guns also holds shells etc. Every drawer and door has skeleton key locks and also inside I have rings attached for aircraft cable wire to hook through the rifles for extra security. I’ve put countless of hours and I’ve learned so much building this cabinet.

Woods: ash oak maple hickory

I can see that you have put a lot of work into the cabinet . I like the way you used the bars. You can see the guns but they are still secure . Very nice work

Sheri,

You did an outstanding job on the gun cabinet. The “bars” are such a good idea . . . it will be so much safer than glass.

Thank you, I really like the bar look. The customer came up with the bar thought so I had to figure how to make it look decent without looking tacky. Yes, that’s why you haven’t heard from me. Some days I started working on it from the moment the kids got on the bus till 3:00 am trying to get it done. I think the hardest part was fitting the drawers with side slides I’ve never done drawers before. I’ve learved a ton working with hard wood for the first time as well. Let’s just say many broken bits and I caught on that pocket kreg screws worked the best.

I really like how you integrated the metal bars.
