I will say this, making your hobby a job takes all the fun out of your hobby. This might be my first and last “job” when working with wood. I love the hobby feel of it so much better. They’re ash with a cherry finish.

Very nice…..but I kind of know what you mean about fun. You should put some guns in them and re-post.

I made a sketched temp. out of 1/4 ply and went from there. but the boot (profile) is 12” at the base, 4.5” at the top (then just round it over to suit your style), curves down to about 3.25 at the thinnest point. the section that holds the barrel is 26” wide, 3.25 deep and cut at 10 degrees so the barrel lays back into it. I used a center finding ruler (a MUST HAVE ruler) and marked the barrels evenly across. The bottom or floor is 1/4 ply, the rear is 3.25” and the front is 1.75. then just ran some dados for the plywood. then it was just screws and plugs.
