Juniper Gun Cabinet-made from “Forest Reclaimed” wood- The juniper on this cabinet was goregous, especially the burl on the front of the door. Accents like a deer shed antler handle and combination lock were added to this piece. Finish is a Tung oil,Poly mix. The wood came from “Forest reclaimed” wood from forest cleanup in our area. Since we are in such high fire danger here, it is very important to keep our forests clean and healthy to prevent forest fires and improve the watershed. The wood is normally either chipped up and left behind, cut into firewood or animal bedding. The forest service is trying to add more value to this small diameter wood, by having it lumbered and therefore gets made into beautiful pieces like this, by people like us.

Wow! Nice cabinet. I looked at your web site. Very nice custom furniture. We just need inside photos of this cabinet. (or you’ll never see your router again) ha ha.

I think that the burl panel is going to get a lot of attention. It is simply gorgeous. This is a nice piece and the upper cabinet has some nice character to it as well.

Thanks for the post.

Beautiful burl, it is a really great piece of wood. I am sure it will be more of an attention getter than what goes inside.
