That is a very cleaver design and execution. When filled that must weigh a "ton". How many weapons can it hold total? Very nice job!
I really like it. Is there are reason that the hinge cup holes are drilled in the cabinet vs. the "drawer" fronts? Nice job!
Thanks for the comments. Yes the cabinet weighs a ton.
I believe it held 18 rifles, and what ever you wanted for pistols, ammo, or knives in the top 2 drawers. It had to be wide enough to hold a Springfield trapdoor 45/70. Long rifle.
I believe I did the hinges that way so when they were open all the hardware was thrown out of the way below the drawers so they could slide free.
I guess I'm wondering why bother doing hinged fronts with drawers inside....Would it have made any difference to put the fronts on the drawers?...if so wouldn't it be easier to put heavy drawer slides?
It is a nice job buddy, I'm not diminishing the effort you made.. just wondering why
I could not agree more. The client wanted it to work the same way the piece was shown in the old picture. So that is the way I had to make it.
If the hinges were opposite you could not click the hinge release clip to remove the drawer front without removing the drawer first
What did you charge for the piece? What where the dimensions?
I have someone who wants the same thing, only with sturdier locks.
I will get the dimensions for you in the next couple of days. Swapped right now. Can't remember a price. Most likely NOT enough.
This is a great setup. If I could I would like the dimensions for it.

Beautiful! Where can I get the plans for this item?

Can I get the plans for this gun dresser? It's an awesome idea, and I'd love to build it.
I would like the plans for this gun dresser if that's possible.
Plans for this are from the Woodsmith magazine Vol. 21 No. 125. Go to their website and order a copy of the magazine if available. I modified the dresser and turned it into the gun cabinet you see. 57" tall, 62" wide and 23" deep. I just stretched the Woodsmith cabinet into the gun cabinet.
Are you still building these? I would like to order one if possible.

OMG! This is exactly what I want to build for my husband. Not sure if you guys sell or give out plans. If you do I WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE THE PLANS FOR THIS CABINET!, My skill level is intermediate.

Plans I used where hand drawn I did this so long ago. I no longer have them.
