I’m pretty proud of this piece. …since I’m fairly new to woodworking. (Less than 9 months) and of course. .I don’t have very many tools…lol
I always wanted to have a something that had a secret door or hidden compartment. …something cool like that..so… I made this gun cabinet. ..I also installed some hidden locks with magnetic keys . Why not right? Everything came together so nicely. …..almost scary. .how smooth it went. So..this is the out come …..I’m extremely happy it came out nice.

I could have made it a hutch….but my buddy asked me to make a gun cabinet for him….he said I could use my imagination on the build..lol

Very nice! Great inspiration! Had never given thought to magnetic key locks but I like your thinking!

Thanks….they work really well….very inexpensive. ….I used SOSS invisible hinges. …pricey. …but works awesome! They definitely can hold alot of weight.

Awesome. Great finish

Excellent work! So were did you find the hinges and the magnetic locks?

For the hinges I used Google and I searched for hidden compartment hinges. .found Soss hinges. .then I went to youtube and learned more about them…same with the magnetic locks…they are actually baby safety products to keep your babies out of the cabinets…. I found the magnetic safety latches at home Depot. …but got a better deal on both hinges and locks from eBay.
