The original design was as you said JoeinGa, but like Patcollins said, I’m worried about the little ones seeing the shiny button and pushing it.The kids are being raised around guns, so hopefully this is all just over precaution, but I’d rather be safe than sorry when it comes to my son or my nieces. I’ve come got a new direction I’ve started to rough out on paper, using a spring to hold a wooden arm in place, and a dowel coming up through the bottom would push upward on the arm, causing it to unlatch the bottom box from the top slide. I’ll see if I can get out to the shop and get some pics for easier reference for everyone. Thank you all for the comments so far. I’m positive I’ll get this working with all the help I have here at LJ.
