made this for my step son for a graduation/birthday/christmas present. found the plans from pop mechanics but wasn’t so easy, some of the cutlist was wrong. good thing caught it early! it was my first fancy build i guess you could call it.

Looks very nice! I need a gun cabinet, but here in California you can get yourself into serious civil troubles if you store guns in a nice cabinet like this with a glass front and somebody gets to them. To get around that, and to get around having an ugly gun safe sitting in my house, I’m going to get the safe and then design a cabinet around the safe. There’s no way to make it as nice as what you have here, but I’d rather be looking at a big wood cabinet versus a big metal gun safe. I saw one once that somebody did where it was just a big hollow cabinet that sat on top of and over the gun case. Then you could open the cabinet doors to get to the safe door.

Very nice! However, it offers no security against theft. I know from experience.
