First Off In order to get a firearm , My Wife said i had to make it safe too keep but easy to get at . last week i started a project to stain our nightstands since they were a light light brown , they came out a dark brown kinda nice matching bed linen and window things ( chick Stuff ) lol any way needed to make it accessible in a pinch , but not so for guests and kids that come over what i made was a nice comfortable resting place for Mr. Springfield clips and few accys .
Step 1: Adding separator
had some 1/2 shelving form an old computer desk I disassembled and modified , and added in the separator plumbed and measured, screwed in some brackets i had , and after that my makita drill battery had died completely put on charger and bad cell :( so adding the next part was the spacers to keep the lid flush with top and door , by doing so i had to take the separator off to screw those in UGH I HATE DOING THINGS TWICE !!
Step 2: Back cover
to enclose the back added the non removable top and adding a center brace for that and the lid , and the next day going to home depot picking up a 1/4 sheet of 1/2" MDF had to do the top over again GRRR having to find the holes from underneath and countersink the screws
