Who says a gun cabinet has to look like a gun cabinet? Peter Kasper, a young friend of mine, is a senior at Iowa State University, where he majors in Furniture Design. Peter also shoots for ISU's trap and skeet club, so when it came time to submit a piece to the 2010 Design Emphasis Show at the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta, he built an oak and walnut gun cabinet. He tells me: "I would classify this as a 'Contemporary Studio Piece'-meaning it is part experimental sculpture while being functional. I was influenced by James Krenov and the British design firm Cato."
