excellent project, I had a rude awakening few years ago, a person I was little acquainted(friend of a friend) with, approached me asking about “My extensive gun collection!” From then on I keep all in Safe.
I learned a long time ago that it is better to store rifles & shotguns muzzle down to keep oils & bbl cleaners, etc out of the stock woods. It is good also that you dont reach in and grab the barrels. Most factory stocks were finished on outside but inletting was not. Now there is usually some sort of synthetic or pillar bedding in place. I still store my guns muzzle down in the safe.

Excellent work, that is the first time I’ve seen a pistol display like this. Nice addition.

Very nice. I have to agree with whitewulf; this type of cabinet offers no security. This is the type of cabinet I had. Now I have a heavy steel locker. Just trying to save someone some future grief. If you have to worry about oil running down into the wood, you are using too much oil. A very light coating is all that is needed.
