Mosin Nagant Rifle Crate Coffee Table

Via comment by Anonymous on Throne of Weapons

I original saw this piece of awesomeness you see below on arfcom. I knew I had to have one. So I got in touch with Bryan at AIM and acquired some mosin crates and Laminate Stock M44s. Thanks Bryan!

 

Now my photography equipment consisted of an IPHONE 4, so the pics are not as crisp as what you see above. Additionally, this project was a lot more work than I anticipated.

First you start with a basic crate. The wood on the inside is generally in good shape, the wood on the outside; not so much. They move the crates around with forklifts so you can imagine what could go wrong. There are several places that I had to repair with wood putty. I forgot to take pics of that process.

    Now thats a conversation piece, nice wood work. Saw one made out of a lobster trap with glass top. Stuff that will make you pause to think?

  4. That's cool, but what a pain in the ass when you need to get to a rifle in a hurry. You gotta move your beer off the table first...


    :D

    1. Damn, I didn't think of that.:) Maybe we could devise the bottom as a sliding drawer and with a touch of the button an "Assault" rifle would spring fully loaded and chambered into your hillbilly, toothless, Confederate hands!:)
