Started with a storage cubby I made last spring for my bedroom.

I built in a 3" or so false back to the top two compartments and added slides and a drawer.

I'll try to get a video posted up. All you do is press on the front of the drawer and the push to release latch pops open and the spring shoves the drawer open about 3 inches.

Very nice! I don't have the carpentry skills to do that I'm afraid. If It can't be done with 2x4's and 8d nails, it's over my head.

Sweet. Very Nice. I believe I'd have a pistol in there too. 

That said, if you have kids, they will find it.  You might consider some sort of locking mechanism on it.

Some of those bookshelves are pretty appealing.

Very cool, you did a fine job. How tight is the seam on the side, would it show after paint or stain?

It is looser than I would like, if you look closely you'll see it. The issue for me was having the fit loose enough for the spring to open the drawer like it should. So, its a compromise. There are lots of ways to hide a seam, but this one will be tough to see unless you knew it was there so I'm not worried about it.

Just watched the video, I like it even more. I agree, unless you knew it was there you would never see it.
Dang brother, that's so cool.

Thanks for the video.  It really shows what you did.  That would be a perfect piece to have somewhere like a living room in case trouble began and you couldn't get to where you store your rifles quickly enough.  Good work!!
