    My ideas may not work with your closet idea. My first gun cleaning table was a piece of countertop mounted on top of a small rolling cabinet from Sam's Club, it had a back piece with racks on it, room for holding a couple of guns plus cleaning rods, etc. It also had a fluorescent light mounted above. At one time I had a pic of it here on DC. It was cheap to build and very handy with rollers for moving it. It and my tools burned up in my shop fire.

    My most recent was one of those giant thick wooden top, rolling cabinets, with multiple drawers from Sam's Club. That's it, no modifications, I have the drawers dedicated to gun parts, cleaning/lube stuff, and tools. I just roll it out of the way, and roll it out a bit when I use it.

    Warning, those rolling cabinets must be assembled, even the drawers, not really difficult, but more tedious than anything.

    What an amazing gift. You're a keeper!

    I would suggest soft white lighting, a non-porous table surface at about waist hight, a gun holder and possibly small vice (not sure what his skill level is) would be good additions. Small drawers under the table, and depending on the size of the room and his tastes, make the table fold up onto a wall.

    That's all I have for now.

    Welcome from South Carolina... My compliments on your initiative! Hubby is a lucky guy....
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I built a small folding workbench in my last garage, it was a small one car so it needed to fold up an out of the way. Pretty simple project, I built a box frame on the wall out of 2x4s, used a piano hing for the back of the top so it folded up and latched the box shut. I installed peg board inside of the box for holding tools etc. It had folding legs and made for a pretty clean and neat install. I would think your carpenter could easily put this together. Go online and look for folding workbench plans and modify accordingly.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
