The customer wanted space for 16 guns. His wife limited the space allowed. So this was the decision. 10 guns on the carousel. Made of Beetle Kill Pine with Red Cedar trim. It’s 78” tall, 38” wide and 26” deep. Magnets underneath the elk skin to hold the guns in place.

This is not part of the bedroom set. That will be finished in a couple days.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome

Excellent design. Bet a lot of head scratching went into it. The carousel is inspired.
The leather inserts and magnets are great ideas, as well.
Thanks for inviting us to the unveiling.

Monte, this is a beauty, I would have to be paid a lot to let this one go, it’s one of your finest pieces you have made, have you made yourself some pieces for yourself.
