Since its hunting season, here’s a couple projects that i’ve done not too long ago. The first 2 pics are made of antique/reclaimed cypress. The third pic is a paint grade unit with mdf drawer panels. The customer decided she wanted me to stain this unit. The mdf took the stain great, though it required some tinting. I’m still trying to find a pic of it finished. The last 2 pics are of antique pine.

Absolutely gorgeous! The cypress is awesome.
Having made one (only) I appreciate the amount of work involved. Great job.

I really like the round shape of the one cabinet…adds a ton to the design and look.

Very nice. Wish I store guns like that up here in Canada.

Thanks for the nice comments, guys.

Marcus:
The semicircular design allows more guns to be stored in same amount of space. I had done another gun cabinet with the round design but can’t locate the picture.

Shawn:
Its a shame but here in the US, as you are probably aware, they are pushing for the same gun restrictions. At least where I’m at in the US, the average person owns several fire arms for hunting and self defense.

Looks great, unfortunately it offers no security what-so-ever against theft. I think that is what Shawn is refering to.
It’s a shame because the display with the decoys etc looks very nice.

woodeye, thanks for the clarification. The homes these cabinets go into pose minimal risk of burglary due to the communities they are located. I personally, have my firearms secured and out of site.

No one is exempt from theft, no matter where they live.

Knothead, I agree, no one is exempt, that’s why i wrote “minimal risk”. Its kinda like not locking up or hiding their jewelry. Threat is almost nil in these rich neighbors hoods, whereas in other areas, burglaries happen daily.

“Threat is almost nil in these rich neighbors hoods”
It seems to me that these people would be prime targets. It is only a matter of time. Put me down as against this type of firearm storage, no matter what the neighborhood is like. A heavy steel locker or safe is the only way to go.
