This is a gun vise I made for my Father In-Law. It is black walnut with leather pads and pewter hardware. He wanted something to hold his rifles when he cleaned them but he thought it looked too good to use for that he just uses it to display his black powder rifle he made. Guess I’ll have to make another one he can actually use. First try at cutting threads in wood. Worked pretty well….on the second or third try. :)

Very nice stand, may I ask where you found the handles?

Very nice! Did you build it from plans? And if so where are they available. Thanks in advance.

Thanks Hal. Actually this was my own design, although I did borrow ideas from several vises I found pictures of on the net. In the end none were what I was looking for so I had to improvise.

Very nice. I have been wanting to build one of these myself. I hope when I get to it that mine looks half as nice as yours

I don’t think I would use it either. It’s too nice to bang up and I would worry about the solvent on the finish.

Nice work!! Better make a plain old pine one for him:-)) Might even make a short low railed box for the bottom.
