There's no real substitute for keeping an eye on your guns.

Granted, Stainless Steel and Nickel Plating helps, but it's

all still steel underneath.

Wax, Barricade, CLP, Mobil1, take your pick, but they all

need assistance from TLC, and elbow grease.

It could be a trace acid either in the felt you used or the glue itself. This would rust the barrel where it touched only. My suggestion is cut a piece of plastic plank and replace the wood. You can get it at "B"Lowes or Home De"s"pot they sell it as non - wood decking.

Apparently......that's what I thought I was doing. Unfortunately, I can't check on them every 1/2 hour.

I think the question not asked yet is, "Where is your cabinet? In the garage? Basement?"

Sounds like a good science experiment. Take some bare steel put it in the same area guns are in, then do a piece of the steel on just the wood, just the felt, then a piece of the felt just laying on the felt, and finally felt glued to the wood with the same glue you used. That should find the culprit
