    Progress report.
    Dropped from 3 Gun draws to 2. Turns it 3 wouldn't fit in the Mini-van To much "rake" at the back and it was hitting the top of drawer 3.
    Skinned with 1/4" plywood.
    Ran out of wood but plan to line the utility drawer tomorrow.
    Remaining tasks: Finish Sand, Fills screw heads, gaps , prime paint.
    We were going to have a 6" Sched 80 PVC tube for water but determined it wasn't enough water. We'll probably build a containment frame for the usual 5 Gal collapsible water bladder. on of the util drawer.IMG_3244.JPGIMG_3245.JPGIMG_3246.JPG

    Utility Drawer. Rocking the Constructive Adhesive. Couldn't do a full "outside skin" as the panel were hanging up. Cut individual panels and "glued" then in. A fall out of making it up as we go.

    We are not planning on putting locks on the box. It will have those rubber T-Handle gizmos ( think Yeti Cooler Closure) to keep the drawers for sliding open.

    Done! Sorry about the aspect.
    We're happy with the functionality but it ended up heavier than desired. The 36" drawer slide were heavy!

    Maybe I missed it, but I thought you were looking for a vertical gun mounting system? This looks like it is a horizontal gun mounting system. Not trying to be critical but I could have sent you to a really nice place that makes these in lightweight molded plastic. Hopefully you had fun building it and dreaming while you were building.
