Just registered and have a question....
Where can I find plans for a corner gun cabinent with carousel. Looking for one to hold 10 - 14 guns with scopes.
Any help would be appreciated.

John - I think the one the previous poster referred does not meet your expectations, it's not a corner cabinet nor does it have a turn table. Did find a picture of what you were looking for but no plans yet to date
Here's the one from the WOOD Store and they also have one on a wall mounted rack that's rather neat.
Will keep looking and see if there's any plans similar to the Amish one around.
My specialty is searching for plans

John - did you find this one
You can post him a message in the upper left hand corner, he probably still has his original drawings - Good Luck and welcome aboard

If you can't find any plans it shouldn't be to difficult to come up with some of your own. Break it into too parts, a corner cabinet (lots of plans available for that) and the carousel. Start making a template of the gun butt and arrange them in a pattern then draw a circle around that. I know this is very basic suggestions but you got to start some where. Think of it as an over sized lazy Susan kitchen cabinet. Once you start brain storming all kinds of idea will pop up and it can be fun.
Just one idea on supporting the carousel can be barrowed for the tool carouse the was in ShopNotes # 35.

Willy - Thanks for the link. That sure is a nice one!
Richard - Thanks for the suggestions. My dad is actually the woodworker, I'm just the one with the computer and the one with the gun cabinet request. Dad's pretty good, having built all all the furniture in my house and my sister's - we're his best customers, but he doesn't make much of a profit on our orders :-). For some reason he always likes to start with someone's blueprints on a project, but then he always modifies them to suit his own vision on how it should be done. I'll pass along your suggestions.
