Gun Cabinet #5 - kind of boring

Project by Monte Pittman posted 64 days ago 1516 views 4 times favorited 49 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This cabinet was built how the customer wanted. With the wooden door, it reminds me of an outhouse. They didn’t want glass in the door because they have 4 small boys. 2 locks on the door. The drawers have one lock that controls both of them, it’s inset into the side of the cabinet. If you don’t know what you are looking for, it’s rather hard to find. It holds 6 rifles. 72 inches tall, 28 inches wide and 18 inches deep. Made of Beetle Kill Pine

A paying customer should get what he or she wants. Frankly, it is great craftsmanship. You can be proud of your work. I would love to have those skills, and hope to developed them some day.

I think it looks great Monte. I can understand the want to have a wooden door.

Very nice Monty. I love the distinguished look of the wood with the different colors on this one. The natural edge on the front is perfect . Great work.

I think your clients wanted to sacrifice appearance for function. And you did a great job of following their wishes. Not sure what goes in those deep drawers but I’ll bet they have a plan for them. I’d put it in my house!

Another fantastic cabinet Monte… I like the wood doors more so than glass doors.

Monte, another excellent project. When do you have the time to do this kind of work? Of course, the BKP is great. It just makes the whole cabinet pop. I’m gonna need more of you BKP soon. I have started a project and I don’t think I will have enough of the 6/4. What can you do for me? Thanks.

Even if you don’t like it!!!

This is the compromise that the “artist” must make….
So as not to be a starving artist!!!

Great finish! I like the double lock setup. That should help keep it nice and secure with the boys until they are old enough to know better and have the training they will need from the adults!

Again Great Project!!!

It’s still a “Monte Pitman!” And it gets you closer to the “new shop”!

Certainly not boring Monte. Nicely done cabinet and the kill beetle pine is really spectacular.

That Beetle Pine sure has nice color/s and graining to it. Nice build, as always, Monte. Hope that tornado missed you out there, and, NO, never boring

I like the solid wood doors also, this is a beautiful, functional piece. Your craftsmanship really stands out with this one.
