Welcome to the site. I have built my own gun cabnit but no plans. Just played it by ear. I like cabnits better than safes, seems this country is in one hell of an uproar over everything anymore. I took a different attitude and taught my kids about guns. Would send you a photo but haven't re-done it yet since my house burned.
Just keep in mind, your building a box to keep your guns in. Take it from there.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
