    So I really had to do something for my closet, all my electronics where all over the floor to the point you couldn't walk in it. So this is what I came up with.

  3. Walnut Meets Pecan.

    Pictured: Men's valet box, this box is made from Walnut and Pecan, I wasn't sure how the combination would turn out when I matched these two woods together, doesn't seem as though I got the contrast I was really wanting as it seems they blend in to much, I'll chalk it up as a learning...
  4. Headboard that hides an AR-15

    Sometime concealment is the best protection. If a thief doesn't know somethings there then they don't know to take it. That is what I've done with this headboard. I like to call this the Covert Sliding Bookcase Headboard. I built this one in October 2017. What I did was to start with a...

  9. Gun Safe Clock

    A friend of mine who is a Detective wanted me to make a gun safe for him and left it up to me to decide what it looked like. I figured everybody has a clock, so it wouldn't be obvious. I put a hinged door on the front for a little fake-out and used Soss hinges for the hidden compartment, so the...
