I just got though building a new gun cabinet. I used so old cypress wood. Had a hard time getting good pictures it's so big. Eight feet long and almost that tall.

Very nice!
I can relate to how much time you spent on this!

But... you still have more guns on the side! Does that mean you are selling the Thompsons soon to make room??? biggrin.gif

Very Nice BUT it still appears you have many other toys around. Better start building a few more cabinets. cool.gif

In one picture that only shows the last few inches of the end of the barrel it appears you have a belt-fed item there.
Is it an M-60 or what kind? dry.gif

Nice work! That is one beautiful cabinet. Did you use any particular set of plans, or did you draw up you own? How long did it take you to make it? What are those long thingies in the other side of the cabinet? Perhaps, door stops biggrin.gif ? Like I said, nice work!

Bee-yoo-tee-ful!
I've never worked with Cypress...tough to work or?? Looks like the "look" I'm looking for in a small set of shelves I'm planning to build to display some old fishing lures (Heddon, Shakespeare, etc)....now where might I find some in Minnesota??

Nice work! Nice hardware, too!
