I made this gun cabinet for my son. Everything in this came from the farm. The old barn wood came from the back side of one of the barns here. I really need to put some new boards back on that barn. LOL The clock is a reverse clock, and yes, it does run backwards. I still aint got use to telling time with that one. The deer were harvested off the farm and were kind enough to donate their antlers too the project. The pistol acsent piece is actually a Buffalo Bill knife. The skull is from a coyote that was molesting our livestock, and was kind enough to donate to the project. It has a small set of deer antlers inside the cabinet. Also inside of the cabinet, it has a 24” rope LED light with the light switch on the outside. I used the bottoms of shotgun shells liberally as inlay. It also has a weather station that includes a Thermometer, Hygrometer, and Barameter in it. All the handles and pulls are antler. I think it turned out alright

“but I think someone stole your guns…….... (laughing)”
It’s just a matter of time. It is really nice and creative but offers no security.

Thanks for the kind words. Security is a non issue here, so no need for locks on it. If we was somewhere else, I would have added locks.

Woodbutcher- We pretty much have a arsenal here, and Coty is a Marine too!

I like the uniqueness of your projects. Shows imagination. Gotta be willing to be different in this business to sell.

It looks very good in it’s own rustic style. I like it. I think that it’s very creative.

Coty is a Marine too! See that is all you really need because nobody in any state of mind would want to take on someone that is called Devildog. Unless of course they have a urgent desire to suffer greatly then visit the afterlife. (laughing)

Very imaginative use of resources. I like the idea of time in reverse and if it’s going to happen it most likely will happen on a farm or ranch where common sense and goodwill are abundant!!!!!!!!!!!! Hoss keep on creating and I’am sure your son is proud of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great rustic look! Very nicely designed and built. I’m sure your son will always treasure it.

Nice looking gun cabinet there hoss, lot’s of features for a gun cabinet. I also have a couple of those pistol knives. Never knew quite what to do with them. They were a gift, friends know I collect guns and knives. My friend told me she couldn’t make up her mind which to give me and thought a pair of those would be funny.

I like it! Projects where the materiels have a history or story are the best. Not a barbed wire fan though (no equine veterinarian is!). Glad to hear that security is still a non-issue at your place and hope it stays that way. It used to be that way here but times changed :(

Woodbutcher- Absolutely LOL! Thanks buddy

Michael, John, Greg- Thank yall for the kind comments

Darrell- I was in the shop late one night and close to having it finished, but still needing 1 more accent piece but had no ideal what. As luck would have it 2 fellars walked in the door, literaly right on Q, and gave it to me for giving them some old scrap. BAM! I had the accent piece I needed

Andy-Thank you. Im with you on the barb wire, only use woven wire or livestock panels. Just about all the farms around here use barb wire, and the barb wire on this gun cabinet came from our farm, old fence that had been replaced.
