My son asked me to make him a concealed gun cabinet. I have access to good pallets so I got three and dismantled them.

Then I cut them to size and ripped them so the made a scale American flag. I made a box and lid from the struts. I had to lap them on the long edges to eliminate the fork lift slots. I ran them through the planer and jointer and table saw (shopsmith Mark 510) to get even boards with no warps. I glued the stained boards to a 1/16th luan board.

The flag was too short to fit the length of the guns so I made the boxes to long. and added boards the same thickness as the flag slats to the sides. Then I cut stars out stained and glued them. Finally I installed concealed hinges that were adjustable so the door would stay open on the wall and installed a RFID lock. My wife cut and glued felt into the back, then I mounted it with cabinet screws into studs and glued patches of felt over the screw heads.

Thanks for the kind comments, I don’t know how to respond individually. No trespassers so far.
