    The cabinet would be made of 1/4" plate steel, clad with tiger maple so that it looks totally wooden. The glass would be 1" laminated ballistic Lexan, and the S&G dial would be hidden behind a panel. Something like this but a good bit deeper. I'd want it to weigh upwards of 2K and have attachment locations through the bottom and through the back. It would also have a dim interior light to add a bit of ambiance, but when you opened the door, a brighter set of lights would engage.

    I thought this was a thread about furniture..... bummer.

    I'm wanting to have a gun cabinet built, maybe I'll start a thread on gun cabinets :)

    So an expanded cabinet is what? A museum?

    How about a museum with a central space about four stories high and large enough to comfortably hold an Iowa class 16" three gun turret. That we could roll outdoors on special holidays to fire off some three gun salvos.

    And a comprehensive collection of 19th and 20th Century artillery and small arms. Small enough that you could see it all in less than three days or so.

    Oh, and a really nice Colt Python, well lit.

    Cabinet? I dream of a gun room, with furniture, full of guns and WW2 vintage gear.

    I don't have that much time.:D


    I had the honor of Staying with Col Cooper while he was alive.

    I'd imagine several here have seen his 'gun room' with the safe door....


    I want me one of those.:p

    Add a sporterized mosin-nagant, a blackpowder rifle (traditional, forget in-line) a Colt 1911, a S&W .44mag, and some more mouseguns (just because they're like potato chips, can't stop at just one) and I'll have mine.

    I don't have huge aspirations for my collections, just want a well-rounded one.

    so far I have 22.lr revolver and a rifle, 12ga shotgun (pump), 9mm subcompact carry pistol, .25acp mousegun, blackpower revolver. Enough variety to plink, skeet/trap, hunt, protect, shoot something that feels antique, even though it was made in the 90s (blackpowder revolver).
