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.
I'm like Ret, I couldn't put two boards together square if I had to.
Lighten up Francis!

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.
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!!
