The Birdhunter’s sweet wife gave up the spare bedroom so it could be used as a reloading and gun room. A perfect place to display the side by side bird guns, I needed a gun rack that would present the shotguns horizontally. Obviously there is not much of a market for such a thing so I made it myself. It was a fun project and, as the design was kept simple, it turned out pretty good I think.
Black walnut rough stock
No fingers were lost!
The Bosch 4100 table saw did a fine job on the cuts.
The completed project.
A French cleat holds the rack securely to the wall.
Trigger cradle adds a bit of security to keep guns from jumping off the rack.
Leather lines the barrel shelves.
