Willa-Hide Introduces A Dresser That Hides Up To 12 Long Guns

3

Our friends at Willa-Hide reached out to me about their new chest of drawers that has the capability to hide up to 12 long guns in plain sight.When we took a look at Willa-Hide’s manufacturing facility and were surprised to find that instead of an assembly line, it was more like a high end furniture maker’s shop. Our experience when reviewing the Hidden Memories concealment mirror it became very apparent that the owner Tracy is nothing short of an outstanding woodworker.

The new chest of drawers is made entirely out of solid knotty alder wood, making the dresser a heirloom piece that your kids could enjoy one day. The solid wood construction means that it weighs in at a hefty 400 pounds, a touch different than your Ikea dresser. Maybe your spouse will help you move it 30 times when deciding on where it should go …. maybe.

Willa-Hide sent over some great photos of the new dresser, it looks like the construction and finish is as high quality as we have come to expect out of Willa-Hide. The MSRP of the dresser is currently $1995, well in line with most custom furniture.

    Cool idea and pretty good execution, but why does all gun furniture have that rustic look?

    • Patrick R. – Staff Writer

      It might have something to do with the company being located in Texas.

    • M.M.D.C.

      Assuming guys like rustic stuff and they are buying the gun-hidey stuff it makes good marketing sense. Plus, rustic is cheap and easy.

      • Mike N.

        Well I don’t. Something like this would stick out like a sore thumb in my house. Plus it may be cheap and easy to make but they sure aren’t selling it cheap.

        • Patrick R. – Staff Writer

          They start with quality new lumber, not reclaimed wood. Making it look rustic actually adds several steps in the process and is not easy to do while making it look natural.

          • M.M.D.C.

            When I say ‘cheap and easy’ I mean in comparison to walnut or maple. Knotty spruce or pine is relatively cheap and so it’s a good way to keep costs down and finishing it with a rustic look compliments the cabin-grade wood. Keeping the cost down becomes a priority when building a relatively complex piece like this, so ‘cheap and easy’ wasn’t meant as a criticism.

    • Martin M

      Well built for sure, but that finish. Both the spouse and I love our guns, but we both agree that that is not a fit for our home. I’d have to strip and refinish it.

    • JLR84

      A lot of people seem to assume that “gun guys” take their home-decor inspiration from Cabelas.

    Neat but at $1,995 I have to say… no thanks. Even their hide away mirrors cost $845. I know its a specialty item but the markup is crazy. I have seen a prison furniture shop that makes all kinds of stuff from desks, to cabinets and display racks, stands, kiosks, etc and the wholesale prices are supper low. I guess knowing this, maybe that is why I can’t buy at retail.

    • Renegade

      Well, I would imagine the inmates aren’t paid quite as much as their skills would get elsewhere. Neither is the prison relying on paying all their bills by selling furniture.

    • Blake

      …did you really just compare a custom furniture company to a prison woodworking shop? Pretty sure this company can’t get away with paying its employees 17 cents per hour.

    • تنتهك نفسك

      I would rather use the $2k on a nice safe

  • Marc Tierney

    For two grand I’ll just buy a quality safe. Cool execution though.

    • Dan

      If you’re in the market for a safe buy a safe, if you wan’t of chest of drawers that also has the added ability to hide guns buy this. There is a difference. Someone in the market for this wouldn’t buy a safe instead since a safe kinda lacks the drawers for their clothes.

  • TangledThorns

    Wow, this weighs more than my Liberty 24-gun safe.

  • Anomanom

    That really looks nice actually, but is there any way to tell how tall it is? I checked the website and it doesn’t say. It looks kind of tall, and my wife is kind of short.

  • Sasquatch

    Nice! Makes me want to get inventive in the wood shop…. hmmm.
