This is my interpretation of a portable rifle rack I saw some years back. Constructed of 1×4 pine, and held together with pocket screws. By using turnbuckles on the legs we’re able to pull the legs tight together providing a rock solid rack to hold up to 5 rifles. Initially the legs were the trickiest part of the project. But once I figured out the angles (45s and 90s) it was like, sheesh….that was easy! (But then, that’s how it usually goes. Right?) When folded up for transport it’s about 2 feet tall/long and 10 ½”s wide. Almost carry-on size and very light.
This one took a few hours to build, but now that I know the lengths and angles I figure just a couple hours, at most, for future ones. And that’s good because I’ve already got orders for 3 more!
For now it’s going to remain in its natural stainless state. But it might look pretty good with some hand rubbed dark walnut/Watco oil. Mmmmmmm…….we’ll need to see about that.
