not too long ago I recall someone asking if there are any available storage spaces for a 14 gun sun..unfortunately there are not, but it was pretty easy to build one to the exact specs i wanted and cost about 30 bucks....

I found the camo fleece at walmart in the craft section. 12 bucks for 2.5 yards (way more than I actually needed for the cubby--1.5-2 would be adequate). I had an old Ikea DVD rack laying around which I disassembled and used as a peg board stencil (the rack used peg board shelves) Simply clamped it to my frame and drilled straight through the rack into the wood frame..works great.

The upholstery job was the toughest part and took the longest to complete. Personally i used a staple gun--much quicker than upholstery nails.

Overall I'm happy with how it came out and I can now fit close to a 1000 more rounds of ammo plus some accessories :)

Awesome.  I had posted about a month ago seeing if anyone had done anything similar.  I am going to divide my cabinet in half and make shelves for handguns, shooting supplies, and ammo.  Just trying to figure out the best materials and how many shelves I want etc.  Hopefully I get a free weekend soon so I can start it.  I'll post a thread to with some step by step photos as well.  Nice work!

If you go with wood, be sure to bring measuring tape or ruler with you to Lowes/Home Depot because wood is never the dimensions they claim to be. I looked online say they had "1x8" boards I could use for my shelves so I made the frame with an interior space w/ 8' width....had to resize the frame since the piece of wood was barely even 7.25'

Great job man! This may help out...
1x2 = 3/4x1-1/2
1x3 = 3/4x2-1/2
1x4 = 3/4x3-1/2 subtraction on width is gonna be 1/2" up to anything x 6 inches wide
1x5 = 3/4x4-1/2
1x6 = 3/4x5-1/2

anything wider is gonna have a subtraction of 3/4" for example
1x8 = 3/4x7-1/4
1x10 =3/4x9-1/4

I agree to always have a tape measure handy anyway.Nice job again camo looks great!
