Over the years I have heard now and again about companies making large but disguised gun safes. I once even met a man who made them at a gun show with several examples on hand. Of course his business card and flyer are long gone now that I am interested in buying one!
Can anyone give me a lead to such a company or individual?
Does anyone have any experience with such products?
Thanks for the help.

Search TheFiringLine's forum... there was a company making furniture with hidden compartments.

Thanks Elmer. Gotta love that bookcase one from the U.K. Can't pony up 3-4 thousand pounds though.

Well, some of the best safes weigh more than that... ;)

I've not found a good answer. How about haunting antique stores, looking for an antique armoire which just happens to fit around a medium sized Sentry safe?

I guy I worked with last summer told me of a friend of his that hacked his own shack. One of the custom touches he did was to make a "removable closet". The closet in the hall was secured by removable fasteners through the jams. He undid the fasteners and the closet would roll out of the wall and expose a room behind that held his goodies.

My wife and I just built a house. I bought a new gun safe that would hold all my long guns.....for now. I went with one that had a cheap finish. My wife hated it, said it was "hideous".
So I had our cabinet guy build a false cover for it. It looks great. IT matches the entertainment center in the living room.
Any good cabinet guy could do it for you, cost me about $750.00

i saw a good design on the web years back
this Australian dood took heavy walled 2 foot diameter pipe
and welded on a bottom and a top with a wall safe porthole door
there was a false column top and the whole deal was faux marbled
it held two rifles right in the foyer

My Dad has one that looks like a china cabinet. It sits right in the dining room. You really have to look close to tell that there's something "odd" about it. Most folks just ooh and ahh over the Japanese china my Dad bought while he was stationed there in the late 40's.
