How To Build A Gun Safe Coffee Table
Building a gun safe coffee table is an excellent way to keep your firearms hidden and out of sight while still looking amazing, and is something that anyone with basic woodworking skills can do.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Before you start building, you’ll need to gather up all of your supplies. Here is a list of materials that you need to get:
- Table saw
- Wood screws
- Circular saw
- Wood glue
- Gun safe
- Wood of your choice
Step 2: Cut the Wood
Once you have gathered all of the materials, it’s time to start cutting the wood that you’ll be using. You’ll need to cut the wood for the table top, the shelf, and the sides of the gun safe box. Be sure to measure twice and cut once!
Step 3: Assemble the Table Top
Now it’s time to start putting everything together. Start by gluing and screwing the wood pieces you cut earlier together to form the table top. Make sure it is well secured, and don’t forget to add the L-brackets to give additional strength.
Step 4: Attach the Gun Safe
Now you’ll need to measure and mark where the gun safe should go. Once you have the area marked, use wood screws to attach the gun safe to the table top. Be sure to make sure it is secure and level.
Step 5: Finish the Table
Finally, you’ll want to finish the table by adding a shelf for additional storage and a piece of wood over the gun safe to ensure it stays hidden. You can also add any decorations that you’d like to make it truly your own.
Step 6: Enjoy!
Congrats! You have now completed your gun safe coffee table. All that’s left to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy your handy work.
