Very nice! I want to build a gun cabinet for myself. Did you use plans, or designed it yourself? Good looking wood choice as well.

Personally I like the doors....

That happens to me a lot of times when I build something. I'll be unhappy about something that no one else seems to notice.

That's because we are our own worst critics. I'm the same way. I notice every flaw in my projects.

I like the cabinet. Very nice work. Kudos!

Woodworking is addictive, but in a good way.

A few more pictures. I think im going to hide a switch up top behind the molding. so you cant see it. I didnt like the idea of having to try to hide wires coming down in side the cabinet to put a switch on the front. I also thought it would look kind of cheap that way.

I feel like the doors make the front look to boxy.

Cabinet and doors look great to me.
Is that a locking cabinet? Can't tell from pics.

Yea locking it would be #1 in the design. In my opinion. Great job Though.

Kevin, that looks absolutely fantastic!

I need to make a couple smaller display cabinets for a couple display-only guns I have.....I guarantee they won't look *THAT* good!

I love it. Great looking. I especially liked the second picture with the knots. Fore some unknown reason I just like knots in wood. To me it adds personality.

I love it!! Very nice work!! I even like the doors!!

As for the locks, they dont serve much purpose on a glass front cabinet unless you have kids in the home.

they do kind of make it look boxy but thats not a bad thing, just a matter of taste. you can always redo the doors if you want but i think it's great as it is.

Very nice work. The Walnut and the Cherry combination speaks well.

For legal purposes, I believe some states require that each rifle has a trigger lock, preventing use by children defined as anyone under the age of 16.
