I am NOT taking orders for these tables. It was a one time thing.

I built (and sold) this hidden storage table to hide an AR-15. The table top was piano hinged at the back and would lock/unlock via a latch that could be opened with the help of a magnetic key.

The legs and detail pieces were made from large pallet boards that I ripped down.

Looks good and a great idea.
However I would assume there will be “things” on display on the table top. So when you need to access the gun that will all have to be moved first. This will take time and if quick silent access is needed may also make some noise.
Possibly a hidden slide out drawer or an end panel (with a touch latch) that opens to allow for quick access to the inside would be better. Just my thoughts as an old retired Sheriff.

Yeah… I didn’t build it for quick access, but rather – hidden, unexpected hiding place. You could store anything in the table. I just designed it to allow the storage of a scoped AR-15 with mag. I, myself, prefer quick/easy access to firearms for things that go bump in the night.

If you pull an assault rifle on someone, indoors … a lot more is going to get broken than just the things  on top of that table. Just sayin’.

This is a very resourceful table and I hope that you don’t ever need to use it in an emergency. Nice work!
