Gun cabinet in red oak

Post by PJM » Fri Jan 10, 2020 11:10 am

Built this in the late 80's. Should have made it bigger as it isn't big enough for all my stuff now. Time for a bigger safe. The big good ones are really heavy. My daughter has a safe it took four big guys to move in on a dolly and a 2 wheeler.

Red oak has beautiful grain, kind of a very hard wood if I remember. We used to burn it in the furnace on the farm, it held a lot of BTU's too. Nice craftsmanship on the cabinet. I put a small light strip in the top of mine, makes me smile when I see the reflection off the blued barrels. I always thought time spent making saw dust adds time to your life....I miss it too.
