A variation of an 1856 Winchester design wall mounted Gun Rack.
West African Sapele
Designed to accommodate four long guns, with an expanded capacity lower compartment for hand guns.
The lower compartment locks and also secures in two Locking Bars to keep the long guns in place.
A feature in the lower compartment also accommodates positioning my favorite handgun in such a way that it can be extracted rapidly if a situation warrants it.
This compartment also holds more handguns and extra ammo.
The cradles are felt lined.
The Sapele has beautiful figured grain, and to show it off, the finish selected was boiled Linseed Oil and several top coats of clear Shellac.
Sapele is VERY hard and my blades suffered, but I think the project overall came out nice.
I have included some of the process photos from making this Gun Rack and I hope you like it.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
