A friend of mine had 6 bundles of tongue and grooved 1” X 6” Red oak left over from a flooring job, He said he would take $50.00 for it. SOLD!

Nice job. I have to make one someday for myself and have a lot of flooring left over from a recent job. I may save it for that thanks for the reminder and the post. Did you make it from plans and what finish did you use?

It holds 8 guns with one of those places for a double barrel shotgun, I didn’t have any plans, I ripped the tongue and groves off, It’s finished with Minwax red oak stain with 3 coats of Minwax wipe on polyurathane.

The beautiful gun case is on my todo list, if I ever get good enough at this to build one.

I’d love to put my guns in a nice display cabinet but the local thieves seem to be targeting firearms. Had to go all steel and forget the beauty. Certainly a sad sign of the times. BTKS
