11 gun cabinet a friend at work asked me to build for him. It’s a little hard to see , but there is also a pistol rack inside the riffle area. He asked for a large slide out shelf for ammunition. It’s pretty big, so I made it in two pieces. Top half and bottom half. The color is 2/3 golden oak and 1/3 provincial. I tried spraying Minwax Poly…... probably won’t do that again! Fun project.

What’s his address again?.........I need to get my hands on some easily accessible guns.

Like the woodworking but hate the idea…....especially with the pistols, which of course have a higher theft demand.

Nice gun cabinet, solid too being built out of oak. One has to reduce the pixel size of vertical pictures to make them stay upright. I use the paint program because it is easy for my limited computer skills.

This is a big bad gun cabinet and it’s also a beautiful piece of furniture. You really have done a fine job on this piece.
