Gun Concealment Bench

For Father's Day, I bought  my husband this gun concealment bench to store his  guns.  They have been  in the closet  ever since we  moved in this  home  so I wanted  him to have a proper storage for it.  He wanted  a gun safe that  would show  each of them but I thought this bench is a great idea.  I don't really want to display  guns so this is perfect.  
I bought it  at Hayneedle online and I was worried that it would have  some  damage when delivered.  I was right with my worries.
 The  bottom part of the drawer was  coming apart  from the  sides.  The staples  for some reason are pulling apart from the wood.
 I had to correct  the issue before my husband could see it because I did want him to say "this is a piece of junk!"  He never want to buy any  piece of furniture online because he can't see it and it is hard to return them when it's delivered at your home already, it's a hassle really.
 Aside from the drawer issue, the varnish  is also starting to chip off on one of the panels.
 I was gonna try to assemble it myself and surprise my husband  with it as a complete piece but I gave up.  It needs two people to  ]put it together.
 The drawer also have some dents.
 The tools and other accessories  is also lacking the allen wrench.  The number 12 is there but the wrench is not, I was very disappointed.  Luckily, we have one available at home.
 Here's more damage on the wood.
 Anyway, my husband liked it except the part that it was a little hard to put together.  Some of the parts where  screw needs to be drilled, they did not pre-drilled it so we had to drill it ourselves.
 Despite the  small  dents and other issues, it was actually a good piece for the price.  It is made in Vietnam and the wood is  real and not the composite one, my husband hates those composite stuff.
So now, all of his stuff have a storage and we  have an extra space for sitting.  I love the fact that all of it are now locked in one place where kids can't get to it.

Nice ideal and you would never know it was a fun case. We keep our firearms locked up as well and separate from ammunition.

That is a great idea. Everything is nice and secure, but you don't have a vault stuck somewhere in the closet. Very good idea for functionality on several levels.

I agree that guns need to be properly stored, especially where children cannot get to them. This is a classy way to store them because it looks like a nice piece of furniture.

We have our guns locked in a safe. I would be scared not to have a lock on it!

This is great for owners! We don't have any in the house but, could use the bench for many other things. Very cool!

That's a great way to store guns, or even other valuables. I don't think people would notice that this is a hiding spot for valuable things. That stinks that you had some issues with this product, although I totally agree about solid wood - it's definitely worth it!

I love this beautiful piece of furniture and I like the idea that you can also secure your guns inside of it for your loved ones safety.

This is so beautiful. I love to use furniture and find different ways then what it was made for. Great job!

That is very beautiful. I love the way it looks. This is exactly what I could use in my home as well.

I think it is really nice! I have always wanted something similar for my house.

I have never heard of a decorative bench that stores valuables like guns. This is neat! Sorry about your troubles putting it together, though. Glad it still worked for the purpose!

We don't have any firearms at our home, but I think it's a good idea to have them out of sight. I love it when furniture looks good and serves more than one purpose.
