This cabinet was made to store 10 guns. The doors, top and bottom, are lockable. Again the wood is cypress. The case is unfinished here. The owner has to do the finish.

I have to agree with right side up but I don’t know how. The pictures were correct where I loaded them from. Some loaded right some sideways.

Nice cabinet! Couldn’t help but thing of the scene in Wayne’s world. (swapping rack for cabinet of course)

Opens present. Wayne: What is it? Stacy: It’s a gun rack. Wayne: A gun rack… a gun rack. Shyeah, Right! I don’t even own A gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack. What am I gonna do… with a gun rack?

I think the cabinet would look great with natural Danish oil and polyurethane. Just me.

We are going to have to have a class on uploading photos from phones. It is becoming a real problem. :-)

awesome job on the cabinet!!I live in south Florida and Cypress is pretty easy for me to get a hold of. Only problem is it is only used for fencing material. So my question to you is where did you get dried out cypress and how long did it have to sit in order for it to be dried out?

I apologize to all about the sideways pictures but they just loaded that way. My photos are vertical.

The customer finished with a satin polyurethane. He didn’t want to darken the grain.

Firebreather—
I buy cypress from local several mills and brokers that is rough, unplanned but is kiln dried. There is no drying wait time.

It is patterned after a magazine article with scale up to fit 10 guns. If you are interested I can find the article / plans.

Nice work! What is going to be the final finish?

I used WWJ Sept/ Oct 1991 page 48 for the basis design of the cabinet. If you can’t get it let me know and I will send you something.
