Hunter Furniture - Need Help

Hi, I need all you hunters' help.

My father just retired, and built a hunting cabin for him-self (with all his money)...I am taking some time off from work and gonna be staying with him for a while. I am a beginner hunter, I have been hunting once so far. Hopefully, I will become a real hunter by the end of our time.

I would like to buy him a gift for his cabin. I know he needs some furniture and I know the cabin is where he is going to be spend rest of his time. So I would like to get him something, that will remind him of me everyday.

Can you guys help me out with the furniture ?
Is there anything that is used by hunters other then the gun cabinet ?(he is trying to build one)
Or, is there any companies that specialize in hunting furniture, or custom rooms....? (tables, lights, shelves, etc....)

thank you very much, and nice meeting you all.....[/b]

Something that every hunter would like but, doesn't have is a benched station that holds a long arm in a steady position for cleaning, adjusting and assorted tinkering.
A work bench of sorts.

Cableas has all kinds of furniture. They even have couches with camo cloth. Another idea would be to take some old memoribilla of his hunting past and maybe some pics of you or your hunt and him and have someone make it into a shadowbox display.

Yeah that idea came from my parents. When my 13yr old beagle died they had a shadowbox made with her pictures and collar and other things in it.
