Gun cabinets were a very popular wood shop project when I was in highschool.

You were lucky Tim! Not too many wood shop programs left these days. Insurance costs, liability issues, and emphasis on STEM course work have pushed the Industrial Arts out the door in many school districts.

Uncle Buck is correct about wood gun cabinets.

Looks great -- a very nice heirloom piece to add to a home.

Did you also get a new/used compressor Tim?

There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

That looks great Mudman.  My father had one very similar.
You should put a decal or something somewhere inside with your name and the date you re-finished it.
Might be cool for your kids or grand kids to see one day.
