Looks very nice. I especially like the material you chose, Re-claimed material. Keep on building and sharing !

Thanks guys. Going to start re-building my late grandfather's old pool table in a couple days. Now I have somewhere to get advice when I need it. Just stumbled across this website yesterday and I'm already loving it. Can't believe I just now found it.

Nice use of the old barn wood. You gave it new life and a great gift to your father as well. That rifle looks like a Remington 22 automatic. Is that what it is?..............Jim

@ Jim Jakosh- No that's his muzzleloader. Not sure of the caliber off the top of my head.

@ 3Gwoodguy- speaking of history, that's one of my favorite parts of working with the reclaimed wood. You just can't duplicate the real deal. I live in cattle country so most of my barnwood comes from old barns, corrals, and windbreaks. The weathering makes beautiful lumber but it's next to impossible to find any good hardwoods around here.

Good Job! I like the fact you use old wood and recycled wood. I to myself use both more often than new wood. I like the panels they pop against the barn wood.

Good use of old wood. However, wood cabinets are not as secure as metal lockers or safes.

knothead- couldn't agree more, but this is much safer than having them all leaning in the corner of the mud room by the door which is where they were before. lol We have literally no crime in this area so we aren't worried about them being stolen. Only concern is keeping them from the grandchildren's (5 boys) curious fingers. And they aren't allowed even in that room and typically, out of sight, out of mind. This is why I went with the planed down stained panels instead of glass which was my original plan.
