I made this Cabinet to be ither a Curio or a Gun cabinet. The shelves and the gun rack are removeable. It’s also a two piece Cabinet.

Beautiful!!! But I have to say that it looks AMAZING in person! The finish is like silk! Someday you’ll have to take pity on me and show me how you do that! LOL. Good luck with the Festival this weekend!

Very nice. Love the wood! Forgive me for saying this again, but not secure enough for a gun cabinet.

I’m not sure what you mean by secure Knot head62, But the cabinet has a double lock on the top of the doors. And the glass is tempered.I see that the lock is difficult to see in the photo.

Great job. I’ve been combing the internet for a while trying to figure out how I want to design my own gun cabinet. I’ll probably copy some of your ideas
