This is one of the end tables that we made that matches our coffee table/gun safe. This table has a combination lock. The customer really liked this set, as it was built to his request. This table is built out of solid oak, and has a special walnut stain on it, with a poly top coat.

Hoss; Nice work and funny that you posted this as I’m just starting on a coffee table/gun safe. I plan to have a couple of long guns, a few pistol’s and ammunition. I am planning on having the draw pull out from the end but make the table look as if you open it up from the side. I will have a hidden locking system that you can open without having a key or combination lock. I’ll post it when I get it done. Good work and Thank You for your service.

Hey Hoss, Looks great. Cool idea with the shell inserts. Your staining came out nice, still shows a lot of grain. Saddle up for some sales.

Great looking end table shot gun shells made for a nice touch. Looked for a combination lock like you used could not find one.

The end tables are great companions to your “armed and dangerous” coffee table.

That line of tables is looking great and I would say it deserves a 10 gauge shell insert it’s that nice.
Keep building them buddy you are onto something .

Nice table Hoss. Make sure the guy don’t go all “Elvis” and shoot the TV, with a gun close to his chair. haha
