I have been holding off a bit before posting these. This is our coffee table/gun safe with a lock that we made. We had posted a pic on Facebook a few months ago, and it went viral. I gotta say, that its a bit surreal to get on the internet, and see the pic everywhere, and have different captions on it being posted all over the place. Pretty cool. We have improved the design since the 1st one, and are pretty satisfied with where we are at now with these but Im sure we can and will still improve the design. These are solid oak and each one is a bit different, as we customized each one to what the customer wants. Basically, we made a gun safe, that slides into a coffee table and has either a combination lock or a key lock on it. We also put some shotgun shell inlay in the table top. We made the gun rest to be adjustable, in both height and length so the customer can unscrew it and move it to where they need it for a particular gun.
We also use a really heavy duty set of bearings on the back of the gun safe, and on the front of the coffee table for the gun safe part to slide in and out easily.
We also put a storage compartment on one side to store ammo, cleaning supplies or pistols or whatever the owner wants. We also made a smaller box that slides for more of their handy items to be placed into. Everything is glued and screwed or epoxy and screwed.
We have used different finishes on these, according to what the customer wants. Some are tung oil and poly finish and others are stained and poly finish. The 6th pic up top, is of the happy customers that drove up from SC this past weekend to pick theirs up. They were really surprised and impressed, and needless to say, very happy. Always nice to have happy customers.
We have also come up with matching end tables with locking pistol drawers, book cases with hidden locking gun safe in the rear, beds with hidden compartments for guns or medications. But those are for other post.
