So I built a Book/gun case

Wow that is almost perfect;) It just needs to be in my room... but with 3 more walls of all guns, then the library and gun space would be about right:)
Beautifully done! Something you should be proud of!
Question? Do you have any need to lock your long guns? (thinking of local regulations or small children) If so, a small bar across the barrel cutouts should suffice. Great job

What species of wood and stain color?
Thank you everyone and I do not want to mislead so I need to say that I was not the Master Craftsman that actually built it, that would be my good friend Eli, I will pass on all of your compliments to him as they are truly deserving!!!
However I did design it 100% from the cabinlet to the book cases to the pistol case and knife drawer, and the rifle space with the black ship lap backing And even the LED lighting and how it was to be mounted. So I was a big part of it but Eli is the magician that took my thoughts and sketches and made them a reality!

The wood we used was a high-end Oak that was stained in a Red Mahogany… I used Oak because my last name is “Oaks“ in Spanish so I wanted it to represent family…
So I’m building a small library and gun room and have finished the first wall. Thoughts?View attachment 589437View attachment 589438View attachment 589439View attachment 589440
CZ Diesel: VERY NICE, looks classic, a room a Man could go into, sit down and just admire and think about his accomplishments…be surrounded by some of the things he earned in his life and enjoyed. I’m Not sure how that room is “secured” but would guess you put thought into that as well. I know that I enjoy my collection and would love it to be more visible - but I just don’t trust the security to anything less then a very high quality Safe. And that deprives me of the pleasure you will get looking at yours whenever you pass by. I would need to build a house from scratch to incorporate an internal room like that - combining your beautiful aesthetics while incorporating my security requirements. Hope you have many hours of relaxing enjoyment in that room - it is Well Done !
Fine job! The wood is beautiful. Walnut?
Wow, beautiful work and room. I only see one flaw, not enough guns. :ROFLMAO: Seriously, congratulations that is a room to be proud of. Can't wait to see the rest. Keep it coming.

I hunted elephant with Luke Samaris in 2005. It was my fourth safari and I tell you he is a fine gentleman the best. I got the opportunity to meet Patty Curtis, although never hunted with him but enjoyed our conversation around our tent in the Selous. Very sad for a tough guy to leave this world the way he did. Let’s pray the murderers are caught. I hope to see Luke in Nashville.

Good morning. I am a Ruger fan myself. Have you sold to anyone on the site before? How old is the ammo?
