I made this gun cabinet for my father. I started in January and am now finally complete. I used red oak and lined the bottoms with red velvet. I was not sure how that would look but it came out real good. The finish is one coat of 50/50 boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits and four coats of arm-r-seal by General Finish. This was the largest project to date and I learned a lot from it. Thanks for looking…

Amazing piece, I’m a gun fan, can you tell. Hope Dad has enough guns to fill it. I know my son’s always glad when I buy a new gun, knowing he’ll end up with it.LOL

Very handsome. I like the recesses for the butts. That sounded bad, lol. It looks like a sturdy build. Really nice.
