I made this gun cabinet my sophomore year of high school. Its made of solid oak and holds 12 long guns with a pistol display case.

Very nice—especially for a HS Sophomore—wish I’d taken shop instead of math and chemistry that year in HS.

I am assuming you had to call it something other than a “gun” cabinet whilst at school? I would be showing my age if I told the story of making a crossbow in Junior High, which the public school willingly sold me the kit/supplies for, and at the end of the semester there was a shooting competition at school out back with a hay bale, and then everyone took their crossbow home on the bus with their crossbow arrows. Did I mention there were no accidents doing any of this? A much different time. Schools still had a wood shop for students to put their acquired math and critical thinking skills to good use.

Very nice but offers absolutely no security against theft. I speak from personal experience.

Very nice.Where do you live so I can tell my gangster friends where to find and easy taking of guns. Get them in a safe. It’s unfortunate since you made such a nice piece of furniture but it’s the responsible thing to do. Add 3 shelves and you made a very nice display case.

Thanks for all the comments and concerns. Knothead62 and ohwoodeye, I don’t worry about theft at my house. I have a very good security team. Lol. I don’t think you would like to meet them when I’m not home. Now on a serious note, I live in a quiet neighborhood and have a police officer for a neighbor and a state patrolman down the street. My house is never locked and keys are in the vehicles. Call me stupid but that’s how it is here.

gwolfe1977, it is exactly that attitude that helps the thieves. I lived in a quiet neighborhood, too. I had two Irish setters that did not like people but the thieves gave them a Mickey and proceeded to take everything they wanted. When the sheriff’s deputy came back the next day, the dogs wouldn’t let him out of the cruiser. Are your neighbors home all the time? Probably not. Good thieves will watch your routine and get you when you are not at home. Be safe and get a safe!
