Assigned as my final project in wood shop, I began construction of this during the school year. It’s made entirely of maple hardwood and ply. Making this was a very difficult process and it ate up a lot of time. If you want to read more on the process or have questions you can view my “gun cabinet” blog series or comment below.

Very nice and love the look of maple grain. What did you use for finish?
It is not theft proof, speaking from experience. Ammunition should be stored separate from the firearms.

Almost full….. time for a twin?

Nice line up of blue steal and hardwood classics.

I’m guessing 12 ga. pump, bolt action .30-06, 12 ga side by side and a 30/30

close?

John Wayne would be proud ;^)

Knothead62- I used semi gloss lacquer because the maple refused to take a stain well. And I keep most of the ammunition locked in my ammo box.
Mainiac Matt- close but it’s a bolt .22 and a side by side 20 ga

Close….. but no cigar.

I would say that having your ammo in the cab below counts as separate.

You can always disable the weapons with either trigger locks or by pulling the bolts and locking them up separately if you have wee little ones in the house.

Those are two things I already do haha. Unlocked firearms are just begging to be stolen or played with
