Making up some gun coat racks for my up and coming Alumni meeting tomorrow. I take an old rough board, sand it only enough to take the sharpness away from it, color the edges with spray paint on some and finish them in low sheen lacquer.
I have these reject gun stocks and plane off one side, fasten it to the board, make a wooden trigger for them. Turn a wooden barrel and action on my trusty lathe. Take the metal trigger guards (also rejected) with rejected bolts. The bolts are all rusty and corroded so I brush sand them off to being nice and shiney, and lacquer them. Drill into the wooden barrel and glue in the bolt. The bolt doesn’t work. It seems like the rougher the wood looks on the board the better they turn out.
All but one is a rifle stock, one is a target pistol, all but one have black painted barrels but one had a black painted receiver, on coffee colorwood. The top stock is walnut, a blue one, camo one, and the pistol is camo also.
First one I ever sold years ago, the mother told me that her son was doing chin ups on it, and was trying to get the gun off of the board! Thanks for looking them over. Sorry for the dark pictures, these are very hard to get into a camera’s view and lighting….....
