My 11-year-old son wanted a gun rack for his Airsoft Guns. He has multiple sizes so I wanted the rack to be adaptable. He also wanted to be able to hang handguns as well. I used the French cleat system with “hooks” and dowels. I cut the hook shapes on the band saw and my son shaped them on the spindle sander.

This was a fun project and working in the shop with my boy is always great fun!

LOL to both comments!!

He has been asking to go to the gun range. I don’t quite think he’s ready to shoulder the 12 gauge…well maybe. He’ll be 12 in a couple of months. I was 12 when I first felt that kick!

I was about 10 when my dad and uncle chuckled as they handed me a 12” with a 3” magnum loaded. Not sure what hurt more for the next week- my shoulder from the kick or my butt from hitting the ground so fast.

Oh, I forgot to mention that this was made from scrap wood I had in the shop which is why Yankees never throw anything away! :-)
