Default Homemade vertical gun rack

I just finished building this with my girlfriend last night. Completely made of oak and two coats of polyurethane. Still needs to be hung on the wall, but this is the "trial run" of it if you could call it that. Works very well, even though I would change a few things looking back on it now...o well, live and learn even though it came out extremely nice as is!

All in all I think I have just shy of $90 for material which includes the wood, screws, hinges, the **** to the cabinet door, and dowel rods. And maybe someday there will be a 50 cal sitting on it ha ha

Yeah, I had originally thought of trying to find one in a kit or something, but I decided that I would much rather build my own. I guess it gives me that sense of freedom to design what I want how I want it. Plus it is something that I can always keep with me and know that I actually built that lol

Yeah, I rescued one of those Kmart specials - replaced the hinges, lock, and rigged up a frame for the glass since it was barely held in.
Not exactly secure storage, but a determined thief could get into any of my steel safes almost as fast as the wood/glass one. I'm too cheap to pay for a good safe... You know, because for the price of two guns I could protect the rest of them, but that would mean two new guns I couldn't buy and that would be terrible!



Wish it had a stag/elk on it instead, I'm not a bird hunter.

Ha! My only 2 pics of the thing are nearly identical to those two.

Door open pic -


Let's see: 03 Springfield, Ruger No1 .300WinMag, Winchester 9422, Remington Speedmaster 552, Remington 700VLS .308, 1947 Winchester Mdl 94 .30-30, Winchester 1300 Defender

All the really fun ones are in the steel safes
