these are a pair of end tables that match the gun safe in a coffee table. We used self closing hinges on the drawers and key locks. The drawers and locking part of compartment are hard maple. Also all edges and corners are rounded over. These tables are made of pine and have shot gun she’ll inlay. Thanks for looking

I really like these. Is the compartment just to hide things in?

Thanks for the comments. Monte the first ones we did the customer wanted a compartment that could be locked between the drawer and shelf at the rear with a side door so they could put pistols in. We have done them like that every since unless customer request something different

I like em. The shell casing is a nice added element. If I could add this thought. I’d put a magnet underneath the drawer so the key would be handy, but, out of site… case of emergency. Just a thought.

Are you concerned that someone could pop the lock with a screwdriver?
