This is a shadow box to display a Winchester 1894 carbine. The wood is salvaged cedar fencing from my back yard. The gun rack is horseshoes welded to some strap.

This is a nice shadow box that does justice to a beautiful gun.

Very nicely done.

Very nice. I really like the look of old cedar fencing for a rustic feel. One of my friends made all of his livingroom furnature (coffe tables, entertainment center, etc) out of revlaimed cedar fence posts and I love it.

Nicely done.

Like BigBuck, I really like the look of the rustic cedar, the rugged look of the iron work, and the legendary and historic Winchester 1894 lever rifle. (but then again I may be pretty biased as I am also a Winchester collector)

This hansome piece will look good and be a converation point for a long long time.

I love it!

Great work

I have got to show this to my brother in-law. Something like this would be a much better way of showing of the family “Henry”, than just hanging it on the wall.

The scale and use of used cedar are most pleasing.. NICE

I work for a fence company and remove old fences every week. Just think of the possibilities with all of it. Everyone here is just so crafty. I saw a fellow that made a bowl out of some cedar pickets.
I have to say it… Nice rack!
