Ok as i said two years to develope this project. Their are power actuators, electro magnetics, stainless cables, remote controlled receivers, 12v power supply with battery backup and monitor switching, panic button, 12v battery, shop made double nylon pulleys. The doors magnetic lock and release. The little drawers are just that felt lined. The eight are the only drawer that manually lock by pulling out center divide stiles which double as work tables, again felt lined. The lower drawers are remote controlled by top drawer, which when opened or closed lock and unlock the other three internally. The two lower drawers are designed to hold three assault style weapons with removable racks, and again felt lined. Now comes the bestest part. Two compartments one each side remotely open individually, to reveal and lift a pistol into eazy grab position. These were design for 911 size weapons. Again felt lined. Now the two three rifle racks were design pacifically for six Henry Rifles or there of style. The two, one each side are power driven remotely to open an close, and again felt lined. As i said this was a challenge by friends. All thou this was very fun and time consuming to build and get to work perfect, as to when closed there is little to no sign as to what is hidden. Im very happy its finished. The only problem is my house is 1880 sq ft and full of my pieces, that my wife question its placement. I have a total of 3400.00 invested in it development. My friends have offer to take it off my hands. Joking said highest bid but they have only offered 6000.00. Worth more than that to leave in shop if i don’t find a place for it. Hope you all enjoy. Forgot to say there is a hidden panic button on the cabinet to open doors lower drawers and pistol pop outs. And if plug or power goes out cabinet stays locked and remote works approx 120 hrs under tests.

Ideas the source of invention.

Two Glocks I thought the Glock was totally reliable, why would you ever need two of them?
Just joking. You have some really cool ideas in that piece of furniture and the end result is pretty beautiful as well.

How many people do you plan on shooting in your lifetime?

That is a great deal of weaponry for 1800 sq feet. Excellent design. Suggest you put it in the house and drop something else.

unbelievable work! I for one would like to see a video of it in action. Also, more about the locks etc. Thanks for sharing. I have made hidden drawers, but used a “Tot Lock” and a strong magnet to release the lock.

Wow, impressive build, you would never know that all of that equipment and all those mechanisms are hidden in that cabinet. You must be related to Q in the James Bond movies – which drawer holds the keys to the tricked out Aston Martin? :-) You are right – $6000 is too low for that a serious collector would pay much much more.

Thanks for sharing

So…I guess no hidden TV then?
Truth, not a gun person, but I like how you’ve created such a beautiful and secure place to store yours. Nicely done!
I agree with Petey…you need upload a video on how it all works…

Dang, no TV. Beautiful piece. Sounds like a lot of development went into it. Congrats!

Guns locked up when power goes out? That seems against all the zombie apocalypse survival manuals.

Kind of surprised that more people are focusing on the fact that this is a gun cabinet instead of the huge amount of skill and engineering that went into this piece. Awesome job!
