Timekeeping in style

Make it a warrior’s den
Your man cave should also be the place where you store all your combat gear. Keep your airsoft vests and paintball helmets where they belong: in a true warrior’s den.
Give it a raw, natural charm
A man’s cave should have something from the outside nature in it, something that will show your love for the outdoors. A wall-mounted animal head even if it is made from natural resin should give your mantuary a bit of your adventurer’s spirit and charm.
