Made this for my son.
Pin oak is from TN. Used some red oak for the dentil molding.
2nd picture shows my method for holding the Lexan in the door.
3rd picture is the interior of the slanted area. The green felted panel is removable for hidden storage.

Thanks guys!
Randy,
He’s already got my Double Barrel 20 ga. and a couple 45’s. Along with those that he has acquired, He’s likely to fill it up.

Your son should be proud of this. “Pin oak from Tennessee”, you do agree that’s some very fine oak to work with, right? HAHA! Nice.

thanks for the nice comments guys/
Paul, this one is for Nate’s twin, Kevin.
Rick, It’s not too bad to work with. Sure has some odd streaks in it. Finishes nice, though.

A lot of storage, tall, it will have to do. Great… Gene. just needs a TN mountain rifle inside for aromatic seasoning.

Nice but offers no security. I had a gun cabinet like that. Broken glass- stolen guns. Best to give him a heavy metal locker or safe.
