A customer ordered a display rack for his late 1800’s shotgun. Made it from eastern red cedar with two shelves for ammo or other items to be displayed. This rack is 54” tall 12” wide avg and 1” thick. The gun in the picture is not the gun it was made for but used one close to the same measurments to see how it would rest in the rack and to test the gun lock. Used a tung oil finish for this piece and was pleased on how it looks.

Very nice Todd, The Customer should be happy with it.

Thanks for sharing.

I was gonna say “That AIN’T no 1800s shotgun ” .... but you covered that! :-)

Nice job, I like how you did the lock through the wood.

LOL I’d recognize that Mossberg anywhere – I have the exact same one. It’s killed many, many orange clay discs… if they ever get organized and decide to invade, I’ll be ready :)

Nice job! That’s some beautiful wood, and I like the cable lock idea – never would have thought to just loop it through the display rack :)

Neat idea, just be careful looping a lock through the trigger guard. Most gun locks are designed to go through the action, the way it is locked now someone could chamber a round and fire it since all the controls will function unimpeded.

I like the display idea a lot. Cedar makes it really an eye catcher.
