Thread: gun cabinet surround ideas ?

  1. #1

    gun cabinet surround ideas ?

    We are hopefully moving into a bungalow in the near future. As there is no under stairs cupboard to hide my cabinets in i need to get some ideas of how to hide the cabinets in one of the rooms i.e wooden surrounds etc
    I done a google search and noticed some for sale but at 2k and up !! No thanks
    Anyone got any advice and photos of their set up ?
    The surround will obviously have to be given final approval by she who must be obeyed ! Lol

    Does the safe then sit on the wardrobe floor or do your cut the base of the wardrobe out and let the safe sit on the floor ?
    Reason i ask, is that we have a couple of ikea cupboards and they are flimsy enough without making any alterations

    it can sit on floor ,just fix through ,be a bit of a pig when you want to change the said cupboard tho,measure base and cut around it, or just make said frame solid before fixing around safe, and you could also get some spray glue and cover the safe with matching wallpaper! then get stanley blade to slide around the doors, ps dont use flock paper someone will shoot at it, sorry couldnt resist,

    I use a free standing wardrobe. A piece of MDF is fitted to the back of the wardrobe above the height of the skirting board so that it stands flush to the wall. Then it's just a case of drilling through the back of the wardrobe, through the wood into the wall to secure the cabinet. I have a small ammo cabinet on the shelf above in the wardrobe secured in the same way and beside the cabinet there's another bigger safe for shotgun cartridges.

    If you use a shallower shotgun type cabinet, you can even still have the bar across to hang your shooting clothes one side of the wardrobe (but obviously if you have scoped rifles in there they have to be in a bit diagonally to fit, so that decreases the number of guns you can get in there).

    Mine sits on the wood - floating on the wall if you like.
