This is another one of our Coffee Table/Gun Safe, and this one is made from maple and has alot of character. I really liked this one. It holds 5 rifles, plus a storage compartment on the side for various items.This is what the customer wanted and what the customer got. This one has a combination lock, and roller bearings thru out the piece, so the gun safe part pulls out easily. It also has shotgun shell inlay in the top. The first one we posted pics online at the end of last year, went viral, and we have been taking orders for these ever since. Looking forward to getting caught up on these. Thanks for looking.

That is a nice design with a practical use. The rustic wood and the shell case inlay are just gravy. I’ll bet these are big sellers.

Ok I like that very much. I would need a place for my hand guns as well. Since you are building these to sell, mind if I ask what price you receive?

Nice design with subtle, utilitarian purpose, and good looks to boot. I can see why this is a big seller for you. Congrats all around.

Shotgun shell- advertises the owner has an interest in guns.
Lock- “What’s inside that is so important?”
Wood- “We can tear this apart in no time and be out of here before anyone gets home!”

Not sure that the average burglar mentality would notice the lock on the end of the coffee table…they are more looking for electronics, and the big steel gun safe in the Master Bedroom that someone didn’t bolt down. So they haul out the whole thing and cut it open at their leisure in a private location
