Over here at Barrone Contracting were always trying out new ways to make ordinary things look cool. This week we did a regular coffee table and put a stash drawer in it. It was a lot of fun to make and we hope this appeals to the public and start getting orders for these. This has a 6 coats of polyurethane finish on it and the drawer can be lockable but this one is not.

Looks like a good place for a shotgun and a rifle. Nice build.

Todd, I like this a lot! Wooden drawer slides? Looks like a great place to hide personal protection devices.

Todd, that is beautiful. The Red Cedar is something else, it just popps like nothing else I know.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Just want to say thank you to every one for there comments and questions, here are some answers to your questions. Some one asked me if it was wooden drawer slides? Yes and no, the drawer just slides on the bottom of the cabinet, I fine sanded it with 220 to give it a nice sliding surface. Some one else asked about if there was room for your knees? I think there is, we tried it out and we had no issues. The only thing I was not real happy with was the top, I think a live edge on both sides would really have set it off, but I do the live edge thing all the time and wanted to try some thing different. Next one will be live edge. Thank you again every one and feel free to ask more questions.
