One thing you can do is to secure cross props to the back to include dependability and quality. You might need to join the top to the divider behind it by screwing a strap to he bureau and to the divider to shield it from tipping forward. Possibly a steel sheet on top of the rack which the tank lays on to reinforce it in the event that you believe it s essential. promo video services

Thanks for the comment. I do have a bracket on the back attached to the wall to prevent it tipping forward.

Nice work,

I am not sure where jamessusan104’s original comment is but any stability concerns can be addressed by filling one of those earthenware jugs with a good Port (or even Rum for that matter) and place in the lower section, Dont drink any though or your stability may be effected!!

BTW I checked out Gorhams, its a big concern The founder Richard Gorham looks like he contributed a lot to Bermudain various ways…sure beats having to paddle a canoe across to Florida and dodging the gators!!

P.S. Are you still making your gun boxes?

Hi Robert,

Good to see you. I think that jamessuan104 is a spammer. I reported his post, it just didn’t make sense.

Thanks for your comments as usual. Gorhams is a big operation. The Gorhams are an old Bermuda family. What we like to call “old money”, but as you say it’s easier than paddling that canoe.

Haven’t made a gun box in a while now, but I have two boxes that are partially made that I might do something with at some point. One of them is the right size for an Colt 1860 Army I recently purchased, so maybe someday I’ll get back to that, but it was always a labour of love, never a cash cow.

Take care.

Les
