    I never paid more than $70 for the two I bought (gave my son one) at RK.

    After doing some looking yesterday it doesn't appear to be much of a discount, I thought these things sold for like $160 bucks.
    I'm gonna pass on the biometric version, I might keep a lookout for the push button version as a couple of people have mentioned that they like them.

    I have a couple versions of a Fort Knox safe in my Amazon cart. Once I decide on my nightstand configuration, I'll pick one.

    One is a top opening and the other a front.

    Kinda pricey but I figure it's a buy once, cry once thing.
    Anything is possible

    I didn't see a Fort Knox one that is of the same style. If I got a horizontal mount one it be like 6' in the air, lol. I do like Fort Knox and V line locking system a lot better. I have like an 8" vertical space between two pieces of furniture to mount it.

    Be advised Gunvault's customer service is worse than bad. If you need something they will immediately deny the problem and blame the seller. Then they will say batteries need to have at least 5 years prior to the expiration date. Then they will demand video of you attempting to use the product and video of the battery's expiration date. All this for just a simple exchange.

    Yes, they are very expensive, but I am giving serious consideration to one of the "Night Stands" that Tactical Walls makes.

    I'm a fairly good woodworker. It would be easy to build one of these. I wonder where I could get the mechanisms? I may do a little research.

    For less than half of that I could make one with some really nice solid cherry or walnut.

    Stick with the 4 button version. I own several.
    +100 ^^^^^^^^^^ Same here. I own 2 of the 4 button versions. I use lithium batteries and they last 4-5 years on a 9v. They used to get hate because a couple of years ago the old mechanism used a metal cable that would eventually fatigue break. In the past 3-4 years they changed the mechanism and it is far more reliable now.

    Keep in mind, they are lock boxes, not safes as I would define them. With the correct knowledge, they are not overly difficult to break open. But they are great for limiting the access of nosy children.

    I do a lot of wood working as well and was thinking the same thing. Please share if you find that type of hardware somewhere.

    I did a little searching while I was eating lunch (working from home so I can access my PC easy) and what I found is you can make one with common hardware; cabinet hinges, piano hinges, childproof magnetic locks, RFID locks, etc. It just depends on how much you want to spend and how elaborate you want it to be.

    Since I haven't found any plans, the challenging part will be "engineering" it. I wouldn't have a problem doing that.

    The one hesitation I have is that if I go with the magnetic locking system, I have to have a magnet nearby to be able to unlock it. I can hide it in a decoration of some type, but it is sorta like leaving the key to the safe on the table. I'll need to think about it vs just buying a small safe.
