3. DIY Ready offers plenty of how-to projects for the home and outdoors, including how to hide a rifle in a picture frame — “James Bond Style,” according to the artist. The idea allows you to make a rifle or large gun part of a work of art.

In the example, an AR15 is mounted against a wall. All you need is a picture frame large enough to cover it, two wall mounts, two brackets, a screwdriver and a hammer. You are guided through a step-by-step process that hides the rifle safely within the picture frame.

Lucky Gunner notes that making or buying drawers, shelves and furniture compartments is “a discreet way to keep a self-defense tool handy ‘just in case.’” Often, complex locks aren’t so important because the gun locations themselves are secret. It’s no guarantee, but thieves wouldn’t necessarily think to check out a bookcase for valuable weapons.

5. Pictures tell a thousand words to give a DIY enthusiast ideas for hidden gun storage in furniture. Pinterest has a page with photos, descriptions and ideas. Some people post photos and tips or links to sites.

Ideas include a coffee table gun safe underneath the table and a shoebox with space for gun storage under the stairs. You’ll never lose your shoes and always have your firearms protected.
