Default My work in progress

I put this together to have an illuminated outline that remains in the safe or on the wall when the weapon is removed. It makes for a pretty cool glow effect.

Anyway, not done yet still in progress.... trying to find th right text or logo to place on to the available area. I was thinking of engraving the 2nd Amendment in the background.

Next is a smaller one for handguns.

Let me know what you think.

Thank you,

I know what you mean, it was a bit late and could not locate the remote for the lights, I can change the color, brightness, pattern etc.

Still need to decide on an image or phrase to add.

if the lit outline is there in place of the removed rifle, i don't see a need to add a phrase; perhaps the old "KISS" approach will work best here; if you put too much 'activity' into this, it may look 'too busy.'

on the other hand... something plain and simple might just look good, and have a 'grounding effect' on the outlines you have already completed.

This must be because you have so many different guns you dont want to lose one. My grandpa did the same things for his wrenches that he hung on the wall... =] what did you cut it out of? would make a cool sign to hang in the garage

Thanks guys for the compliments, I'll make another two-- scaled down to see how it works out with the AK and I'll look for a SOCOM.

Very nice! I would love things to light up in my safe when i open it! Its kind of dark in there anyway. I would like to start with my Berreta 40.

Maybe even a sweet Marine logo on the back wall of my safe. Is that possible?

My storage is a little too congested for something like that but I do like the artistic aspect of it - very cool & creative. I could see easily see your kind of work hanging on a wall (minus the gun).

I just don't see myself hanging my guns on a wall, unless it's on the wall of my walk-in gun vault.

^^^ would look good in a workshop, or just about anywhere you'd like to put it.
