This is a coffee table that has a locking gun safe inside it. We have built alot of these in the past couple of years. No 2 are ever exactly alike. I think this is my favorite one. It has a hard maple frame and runners on the frame, and the rest is pine. It has ball bearings on the bottom of the gun safe part and also on the top of the coffee table frame part to make getting the gun safe in and out of the coffee table really easy. The gun safe has adjustable gun holders for various types of rifles. It also has shotgun shell inlay in the table top. The table is 58” long, 28” wide and 17” tall. The gun safe will hold 6 rifles up to 50” long. It has several coats of satin polly. This table has all the corners rounded over so it will be a bit safer around younger children, as per customer’s request. Also has a key lock.

That’s really a cool storage idea, Hoss!

Very cool design! It’s easy to see why this would be a popular piece.

Very nice. Them babies will be safely tucked away. Cool touch with the shell.

That’s very clever and neatly done, it looks to have a recycled timber look about it?

Love it, I have wanted to make a secret locking cabinet for this purpose for a while now. Great work.
