Custom solid ash gun cabinet (no plywood) with dovetail drawers, bullet handles, laminated glass, light, locks. This custom made ash gun cabinet is made of solid ash with a solid ash 1/2 back on it. Inside it has trim and a LED light with 2 settings. The trim and crown is handmade with combining router bits together to made a unique design. The drawers have full dovetails that are offset and 1/2 bottom and locks. Doors are arched with European hinges and locks and laminated glass for the doors. On the back is a signature brass plate.

Beautiful cabinet, excellent detail work on this, tight joints, nice trim and moldings. What finish is used?, wood grain looks great.

Thank you everyone the finish is espresso and red mahogany 75/25 mix I wanted the grain to show and pop so I didn’t want it to dark that it would hide the grain. Then put a satin polyurethane clear on it.

Nice work, but it is missing something. A nice rifle as an accent. (laughing)

My next one I building hold three guns with shotgun shell handles hand turned and top of gun cabinet says my 2nd amendment with a 10 point bucks head looking behind him in tribal. The door is a double cove raised panel that says right to bear arms.
