Came across some pictures of gun cabniets I have built over the years. I have posted others in my projects but thought I would add these to them. Most of the cabinets are oak with difference colored stain. The second gun cabinet pictured is birch with maple stain. They are finished with 2 coats of polyurethane and wax applied with 000 steel wool.

Possible sales for you guys & gals? The third picture is some of the gun cabinets I used to sell to wildlife clubs, ducks unlimited and pheasants forever all over the state that would be raffled off each year. Also created more sales from people who saw them.

If you want to get into glass sand blasting go to They sell the glass sand blasting supplies, equipment and how to information.

First class all the way, can see why they are in demand. Sand blasting glass, very cool. Sand blasting equipment would be a great addition to the shop. If only. Great seeing you projects. Thanks…...

Used different parts of wildlife pictures. Also had a good friend who was an artist and sandblaster that got me started. Thanks for asking.

those are some really nice gun cabinets, and also like the that big buck on the wall. I used to bow hunt religously, in the woods every weekend, in the summer I would shoot every bow tournament I could find. Even qualified and shot in the I.B.O held in New York. Don’t get in the hills much anymore (found woodworking) but Turkey session will be here soon and I am filling the fever. Again great job!!!!

Very nice cabinets. The lope on the wall ain’t bad either. Just got mine back from the taxidermist. Got mine with a however. Gave up rifle hunting years ago. Double lung shot 62 yards.

Great looking cabinets!

They have become things of the past in most places, being replaced by gun safes.

Very nice cabinets. Those are some nice trophies on the wall too. Yours? I’ve always hunted with a bow and only went antelope hunting once. I went with friends when I was young and we basically played chase in his blazer as opposed to actually hunting. Stupid kids. LOL. As for the buck, I have gone several times by myself and have seen some very nice bucks. Some by surprise, others I saw and stalked. Never got close enough to get the shot. I’ve taken 2 bulls however. My dad and I used to go and he would call them in. First one was taken at 30 yards. Talk about adrenaline. He came smashing out like a crazy beast ready to brawl. It’s kind of scary seeing an animal that size charging straight at you. He stopped just short, turned sideways and sniffed the air. I could see his breath in the cold air. I drew back and let it rip. I don’t think I hit him exactly where I was supposed to. LOL The search was about an hour long. Packing him out on foot was the worst of it. My dad said “you killed it you haul it”. So He carried the backbacks back to the truck and waited for me. It took a few trips. LOL. Anyhow, brings back memories. Thanks.
