This was my overly ambitious first project! It came out ok but I learned a lot on the way. It is made from the Woodsmith Shop Display/Gun Cabinet plan with some minor modifications to the detail moldings, making them simpler and more up to date. The sides, tops and bottoms of each cabinet are made of glued up panels instead of the plywood called for in the plans. In addition, I added to side glass panes to allow for more light and make the antique guns it is meant to hold more visible. It is made of ash except for the oak ply for the backs of the upper and lower cabinets. This was meant to be nice but not high end.

I’m right there with you Gary. I plan on making one for the bedroom, but we have sloped ceilings so this plan won’t work for me.. That being said, it looks fantastic.

Great job. I like how you incorporated the glass to add light. Makes sense to show off some quality firearms. Wouldn’t mind a re-post with the contents when you add them. Thanks for sharing.
