Gun Cabinet

Recommended Posts

bklimek

I would like to make my own gun cabinet. I am looking to make a 10 barrel gun cabinet. Does anybody know where I could get my hands on some plans or designs? I have googled this but couldn't find anything. Only found 8 or 6 barrel gun cabinets.

Thanks,

Butch

I'am a cabinetmaker. buildt lots of them, 1st idea is just build the cabinet you saw or liked by making it wider by 2 guns. 2nd idea, draw out a full size pattern of the gun butts or how you want them stand or space in the cabinet, then you can work out all your other measurements. there are lots of pics our there, good luck.

i am accually making one in my woods class. it is only a 6 barrel, but it is a very nice pattern. all you would have to do is alter the plans a little and make it a hair wider. just a thought. email me if you would like a link to the web site i got the plans from. (Contact US Regarding This Word)

Butch, you look like a nice young man and I say good luck in building you gun cabinet. I think if you ask your local High School Industrial Arts teacher they might be able to help you find a plan.

Several years ago my daughter built, in high school, a 13 barrel gun cabinet out of Oak and gave it to me as a present. It is the most beautiful gun cabinet I've ever seen.

Not to discourage, but a note on caution. Displaying

our shooting irons in nice to look at wooden display

cases and cabinets, can be inviting some unwanted

safety concerns. Even the best-made wooden units are no match for the modern gun-safes. We as gun owners, should

do all we can to prevent misuse and accidents from

happening. Trigger locks can go a long way to help

against the accidental discharge incidents. There is a

lot of data supporting that in most cases, you are apt to getting them stolen, and having them end up in criminal's hands if you don't put them up and lock them

up in a safe.

tumbleweed i agree with you, i've built gun cabs for a very long time, glass only keeps honest people honest. if someone where to break in there going to steal the guns, if it is your kids tigger locks are great, but then you have a another problem. i use to sell lots of gun cabs at the mn. sports show, but slowly people started to buy gun safes and wooden cabs are bought by people that live farther away from high crime cities. men really want to show there guns and or just admire them through the glass, but with there investment, i hate to say it, the only way there safe is in a gun safe. as far as safety I only worry about my kids, criminals are just that, criminials.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.

      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.
