Trevory,

Tell us more about it; how it’s constructed, doors, drawers, drawer boxes, slides, hinges, latches, locks (if any), wood ( I presume Red Oak), how many guns it holds and anything else you can.

Are you making it to resale or what?

6 guns, red felt in the back of the stock rack to lay clips on, 2 led lights, doors and face frame are all put together using dowels. The top was biscuted together due to it being to wide for the planer and the drawers are rabbited with a 1/8” dado a half inch up from the bottom to support the 1/8” oak venire drawer bottom. The drawer guides are two side mounted guides rated for 100 ibs. The doors were routed out and a dado blade was used to make the groove for the glass. It measures 32” wide and 69 11/16” high by 16 inches deep for the bottom and 11 1/4” for the top. The Gun cabinet is two pieces but is held together by 2 “L” brackets hidden on the back. This is not for sale I was just wondering if anyone could give me a price value on my project.

It is worth what the market will bare.

I dont see a way to lock the guns and with glass windows there is little point in locking it, aside from keeping the honest out.

I notice that some guns rest on the barrel, and others the stock.

In Canada it is worthless unless the whole cabinet is locked in a vault, that said, 1,000 bucks.

“I notice that some guns rest on the barrel, and others the stock”

Every gun safe I have owned has been like that.

Thanks Trevory,

It’s a nice looking gun cabinet and looks like you did a really nice job.

Since it’s not to sell, then only you should put a value in it. If you are asked to build one for a customer, then you will need to figure your time and materials and again what that value is worth to you. $1,000 is not out of line for a custom built gun cabinet.

I’m aware the gun laws are different. I live in Canada. You still haven’t explained why the gun case shown above is “worthless” in Canada (hint – it’s not).

So, I’m not sure who you’re referring to when you say “u shoot to live”. I’ll assume you’re just being a Moron.

@nwbusa

before you quote me as a “Moron”, I fail to see value in a cabinet or a piece a furniture etc., where owning it, doesn’t meet “code” or the “laws” of the land to which we live, which IMHO renders it worthless. Not withstanding the fact that it is far from custom and knowing that there are countless manufacturers on the other side of the pond (ocean) who can also build the same for less, regardless of code and laws ?….there is a difference between cutlery and weapons ?

Putting a price on anything is easy. Selling it for what you think it is worth is far more difficult. So before you open your big mouth, I suggest you take a trip to Sears, or Canadian Tire, or Bass Pro, and see what you get for what you spend and remember………..we both live in Canada : ) All of which do not have glass, nor are they made of wood, and all resemble a “safe”. Perhaps you have found an exclusion to the law in owning weapons ?

If it were made before the law came into effect and was perhaps an antique, I might be able to see the value in it, otherwise, go ahead and buy it. Knowing it is new and clearly resembles all the other amateurs trying to sell the same thing, lowers the value even more as the market for such becomes saturated with the same thing

There are a gazillion wanna be experts out there who foolishly claim they know, what they know little about. perhaps next time you call me by name, you will have learned more then how to perfect a mallet or a simple cabinet to show off what collects little dust.

Cheers

@Moron,

You really love to run your mouth, don’t you? Whether or not you fail to see the value of something doesn’t make it “worthless”. And you might want to polish up on your knowledge of our laws: http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/fs-fd/storage-entreposage-eng.htm. You can indeed display ordinary rifles and shotguns in a glass-doored case. So before you open your big mouth, learn what the hell you’re talking about.

You are clever indeed for calling me a “wanna be expert” and insulting my projects and skills. Man, have I been humbled. Well, let me compliment you on your skills, which appear to be making negative and uneducated remarks while living up to your name. You are truly an asset to our community.

it would be ill advised for me, at this point in my life, to recommend to a Canadian, to build “ a glass “ fronted gun cabinet and expect to make sales

please advise ?
