I wanted to get our small safe attached to the wall, and bring it up off of the floor while I was at it. This took 2 sheets of pre-finished ApplePly, and some solid walnut for trim. Two sheets wasn’t quite enough – I made a couple more shelves (not pictured) out of birch, which I finished with a wipe on poly.
Overall it came out like I planned. It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but the tops of the side panels slope up towards the back. The safe is mounted to the 2×4 stand which is attached to the walls. The access to the attic is directly above, so that constrained the design a little more, especially in terms of height and depth. It’s difficult to get a full top to bottom picture in those cramped quarters. What you can’t see is a 9” deep drawer at the bottom on the right side.

I like this. I’m plannning to do something similar, but with some type of cedar lining. I may steal some of your ideas.

Thank y’all for the nice comments. I liked the ApplePly a lot. The finish was very tough, though I did manage to scratch it in places, none to obvious, thankfully. The edges look really nice with straight layers and alternating light-dark pattern. I would feel comfortable leaving the edges exposed in certain situations, as I did with the drawer. It’s pretty expensive, though.

Good job Jason. Everybody needs a spot like that even if it’s just someplace to stash the liquidator, or family jewels.
