I made this to match a pool table for a customer. He had quite the collection to put in it. After several responses let me say that this cabinet may not seem secure and an easy target for theft. However the entire section of the house that it is located in is a safe room/area. The house is like Fort Knox and has surveillance equiptment. I do however understand the comments below.

Great job, by the way.

That’s a real nice gun cabinet. You did a great job. Thankfully an American can still own a gun collection like this.

Looks like someone is ready to go to war.

Nice cabinet.

VERY nice cabinet…....I mean it.

Anyone that has that many weapons is at great risk for theft and personal injury

I own many of weapons, mostly hunting arms and a few defensive pieces

Also several pieces handed down in the family…...real treasures, if only for the memories

As many weapons as this guy has (and I have)

They belong in a safe bolted to the floor in the basement

For many many reasons.

The culture we live in has changed.

Now we lock our doors

And now it is prudent not to display out firearms….....when it used to be a great conversation whenever folks came over

But those times have come and gone

And as someone said above

Glad this site is pro-2nd amendment

Hope he doesn’t mind having his stash pictured on the internet. Not trying to be an a$$, but I am of the same mindset as your client and would be a bit peeved if I saw my collection on a website. Especially now that cameras have geotracking tags. Just sayin…..

Woodwork is nice.
