    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. :D

    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.

    Looks good, but why did it take so long to make? Did you watch the varnish harden or something?

    No.... It was done in pieces over the course of 2 weeks.. But the 2 coats of stain and 3 coats of varnish took a while cuz I didn't want anything to start to run.

    Nice, it's great that you still have the ability to keep your accessories on at the same time as well.
