Cool cabinet. Why is it, though, that all elderly people have at least 2 .22LR's that are their prized rifles? No complaints here, because I absolutely love my 10/22, but not enough to hide it.

If it's old enough it probably was never registered, and therefore cannot be taken away if nobody knows about it!

The design came to my dad from a customer that had all their guns stolen, it was something for the her & him both. The best one he made was an entertainment center that sat in the middle of the room, you could walk all the way around it and and not see the secret panel. He made one out of walnut and a cherry dining room hutch.

The old craftsmen are dying off and being replaced by Bob Villa Automated Carpenters. My Wood shop is pretty traditional, no dedicated Mortising Tables and all my tools except my Table saw are on Rollers cause my shops only 18' X 14'.

Attached are a couple shots of last years major project, a 10' x 8' addition for my new staircase. All the treads were from the same library, they were the bookshelves from the rare book section.

Thanks Big B, That one I had some help with. I have a good friend who has been a Contractor and Job Boss for 30+ years and he did the entire layout and cut the stringers. I actually went upstate to the mill that made all the Maple Railings and Balusters (I got the turned balusters for 50 cents a piece at a closeout sale 5 years ago). The Owner of the company hand picked the stuff for me and gave me a cash cash price on the whole thing.

Stairs are nothing to practice on. !/8" here and there and it looks like a Dr Seuss cartoon fast! The biggest challenges came to binding 2 different eras of House via the addition (180 years and 120 years old), nothing was level, square or plumb other than the new deck but I had to square that off the old house not true square. I hand dug the 5' deep foundation 3 years ago for it because it is right beside my 150 year old hand stacked well.

It came out beautiful and I think I did the entire addition for under $3000 with the stairs included.

lol, funny you should say that. My mom's nickname is Bob Vila because she's always building something. She built a huge hutch/dresser and asked me to come move it for her. I brought my dolly along thinking it would be a piece of cake. As soon as I got the plate under it and started prying backwards, it wouldn't budge. Had a few more people come over and finally the dolly bent. Then we ended up breaking the bottom of the dresser. That thing had to have been a few thousand pounds of solid oak. My mom is just weird like that. She'd rather have a fancy router or lathe than flowers or perfume for Christmas.
