A friend of mine got a $50 home depot card for christmas. We went and bought pine wood, white wood, hinges, a clip to hold the door shut, and a handle. Ended up spending $20.00 out of pocket.

After getting it home, we discovered that every piece of wood was warped, and the kid who I let cut the frame for the door, a Navy Sea bee, cut it 2" short lol. Ah well, turned out excellent for my first big project. I, ofcourse, ended up being the one to jot it down on paper and come up with the design. My miter saw refused to cut at an exact 45* angle too, which really pissed us off trying to cut the door frame and molding. As you can see, we gave up on the molding lol.

My buddy did the staining and cutting, I did a lot of the measuring, designing and some cutting, and we pretty much all contributed to the assembly.

What do you think?

Doesn't look too bad and it gets the job done it looks like.

I think it looks pretty darn good. Especially for 70 bucks! Id be proud to have it in my home.

Youd easily pay 3 times that for the same thing from Bass Pro, etc.

Looks nice. You don't want some uber-sanded cabinet anyway, at least not to store a 91/30 in. "Is GUN, is not for building pretty cabinet around!"
