When you think about something handmade in the United States you first would think of Amish made. The reason is the pride and tradition that the Amish have earned over the decades. The son of a fathers father was a woodworkers craftsman and was shown the way to marry the wood pieces together and make a beautiful wooden gun cabinet that any home owner would be proud to display in their living room or den. This old fashioned traditional way of making furniture will let you the customer describe your wants and needs to the craftsman. Whether it to be made of a specific type of wood, cherry, oak, walnut or mahogany of a certain dimension that the gun cabinet has to be to fit into a particle place or setting. Being hand crafted and not pounced off with a jig on a machine allows you to have that custom one of a kind piece to fulfill you requirements.
If you are a collector or have a passion for firearms, rifles, shotguns, muzzleloader and pistols you are going to want a place or area to them. Way collect them if you cannot share them with the people you know would appreciate them. I cannot think of a better place than in the security of my home to show them off.
Having a handmade wooden gun cabinet to pass on to your heirs would be a precious family heirloom by its own right. If that beautiful crafted cabinet was to have your prized collection of rifles and shotguns to showcase inside your heirlooms cabinet and guns would be kept safe from damage and pass on to generation to generations to come.
If you cannot find an Amish craftsman locally there are some fine furniture makers all across America that still take a lot of pride and integrity in their craft. Most wooden gun cabinets are fitted with locks on the cabinet doors to insure that only authorized persons are to have access to your firearms inside. The gun storage supplies should be lockable to keep the ammunition and guns separate.
You firearms are not the only things that you can display inside your cabinet. I have seen arrowhead collections, Hummels, hunting knives and collectible knives. The display cabinet is very versatile. With the cost that you have already invested into your collection investing in a way to display them and keep them secure from damage helps protect that investment for you and your grandsons someday.
These social and destructive insects live off wood, decay and dead leaf and plants. Although there are over three thousand species of termites, there are three main groups called the subterranean, Formosan and drywood termites. These groups of termites have many different varieties and live in different parts of the country. Knowing the type of infestation you have is vital to eliminating your home of an infestation.
This termite infests drywood and is a bit bigger than the subterranean termite. These termites have wings and fly from area to area because in search of food sources. The drywood termite lives above ground unlike the other two groups of termites. This helps to identify them if you have an infestation in or around your home or building.
This termite lives in rotted tree trunks, stumps and in some cases buildings. Because these termites live above ground, the destruction is noticed before it become serious. If you spot a dry, powdery and smooth looking pellet piles by a wood structure, chances are you have an infestation of drywood termites. The termite pushes out the feces as they feed on the wood, leaving the evidence of infestation.
The subterranean termite is found in many areas of the country. They also are the most damaging termite of all the species. They live underground and feed on wood. They search out their food source and tunnel into areas they find food supplies. The termite usually caused a great deal of damage before being detected. Repairing the damage made by the termite can amount to a sustainable amount of money.
Consuming up to fifteen pounds of wood a week, a single termite that goes undetected can eat you out of house and home before you realize what the problem. Think about how much wood is consumed by thousands of termites. This makes their type of termite the worst out of all the groups of termites. If one two by four weighs ten pounds, one termite can consume three two by fours in three weeks while we know there are more than one termite, your house could be condemned in a matter of months.
Because they live underground, you may see worker termites in foundations and in some cases your furniture. Once they have their fill and now food left they will move on to the next food source, maybe a neighbors home.
Not native to the United States, the Formosan termite originates in Asia and come to the states on wood products brought in by ships during the WWII. Many times home where built of infested wood and the cost to the government was substantial to rid the homes of infestations. The termite lives underground as well.
