Topic tags/keywords: gun cabinets plans resource

I have been looking for plans to build a gun cabinet and I can’t seem to find any that suite me. I would like for it to fit in a 40in x 26in space. Does anyone know where I could find any plans for this?

How about just making your own plans?

There are many plans available, but if you want one to fit a specific space, I see no way to get that without your own design.
A gun cabinet is basic cabinetry. You could order plans from various sources and then adapt it to fit what size you need.

Here is a plan from a company I’ve ordered a lot of plans from. It’s a book cabinet plan with instructions on how to adapt it to a six barrel gun cabinet. It’s one of many examples though that could be easily adapted to any size or as many barrels as you can fit into the alloted space.

And here is a photo of an idea I’ve had for some time that could be adapted to any space. It’s a gun cabinet hidden in plain sight.

Don’t just post pictures when you’re done. We love seeing blog series on projects in progress.
