Gun Cabinet


bklimek

Recommended Posts

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.

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.

    • CigarGuy

      How many walleye were on the stringer on their way out??? 
    • CigarGuy
      Saw the first boat of the year yesterday, heading towards Black Bay

      All of the webcams appear to be ice-free except for shore ice. It looks like you could navigate most of the way on Vermilion at this point. Happy boating everyone.

      I'm the same on honey do lists. I seem to feel better doing my list than my wife's list, even though they my be similar.
