Concealment frame in Walnut

I built two of these for a friend and just finished them today. They're about 10" x 13" x 2" and made of Walnut, finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer. The frame holds an 8x10 photo.

Thanks, John! Those magnets are rated for 60 lbs. holding capacity - each!

I think I would reduce the size of magnets. The idea is to get to your concealed weapon in a hurry. Not fight magnets.

I agree, George. When I bought these I didn't realize just how strong they were and the 3/4" magnets were not in stock, so I bought 1" magnets. Once the frame is mounted to the wall I think the weapon will come off easily enough.

There's typically not a huge flat spot on the top of most weapons where these can truly grab hold of, they sort of grab along the top rail and that's not more than 3/8" to 1/2" on most and even ribbed on some.

when the adrenaline is pumping from a "reason" to grab the weapon
in a hurry - the homeowner will not even notice the slight resistance
of the magnets. I personally would not change them.

I have had to face an unknown threat at night with my handgun.
the adrenaline was pumping like mad.
thankfully, the raccoon rambled back into the woods from whence it came.

I was thinking the same thing, John. I doubt those magnets will slow anyone down in a pressure situation. But the weapon sure isn't going to fall due to gravity, either!

Nice project & craftsmanship David. Enjoy seeing your many projects. Do you use any software for your designs?

Thanks, Ron! I will occasionally use CorelDraw if I'm trying to work out a design in my head and need to draw something to scale, to verify what I see in my head. For my CNC work everything is driven by what I draw/design on the computer, even if the idea started with an idea in the middle of the night and later sketched on a piece of paper.
