Great job did you use a router or a dado blade?

I like it!

Is the second from the top one tricky to get out?

It looks great, and sturdy. I like the wood choice.
I haven't made one yet, but I will hopefully get around to it. I was planing on doing a floor rack made of either pine, or oak to give it a rustic look.

I actually didn't use either... My dad had a hand wood plane in the garage and I just used that on different angles untill it's was uniform... Then sanded it smooth. It gave it a rustic look on he edges I really like. The grooves the the horizontal pieces sit In were cut with a circular saw.. Just raised the blade a bit and chipped away at it... Took longer but was cheaper than buying a router!!!

Yea the second one is a pain.. Gotta twist it back and forth to get it out but it's not to bad... Didn't realize the front sight was that big lol

I used oak for the wood... It's nice hard wood and when I got to put it up on the wall I was amazed on how sturdy it was...

As i said before looks great. I have cut grooves with a skill saw and it is a pain but when you get done and do your glue up you cannot tell a difference.

Don't show that to the guys from the republic of Kalifornia. They have to have there guns locked up, put away, and hidden.

Nice job though...

You could sell on eBay. I think they still allow gun racks.
