A stylish and beautifully constructed item of furniture suitable for any room.

Over here in the UK, this is what is recommended:

Preferably hidden away out of sight, and bolted to walls and floor!

A very nice gun cabinet. I like the lazy susan type stand for the rifles. Super nice build.

Beautiful work all around. Not secure in any way, shape or form, IMHO. Although I do not subscribe to the strict regulations in the UK, the storage spec’s given by Don are worthwhile for any gunowner.

That is an absolutely gorgeous cabinet. The lazy Susan is inspired. Great job.
My son want’s one as soon as he gets home from his deployment. We’ve discussed security. He definitely wants glass doors. Not a thief deterrent by any means. But a locking door will keep his younguns (5 and 7 year olds) safer.
Out of curiosity, what’s under the shelf?
