After building 4 of the solid cypress gun racks for other people I finally got to build myself one. It is a combination of cypress and pine stained a dark walnut.
Before someone comments about gun racks not providing enough security, I have that covered too, this is more of a display piece and works good for that.

Nice going. It’s a very practical project.

Well I cant imagine anyone wanting to get into a gun debate on a woodworking website so I’ll assume that you genuinely don’t know. That being said, to answer your question most of them are for hunting. Much like with woodworking there are different tools for different jobs, so depending on what I’m hunting I’d use a different gun. I hope that answers your question.

Thanks, jeffswildwood and it did feel good to finally get to one for myself. It’s nice to be open to do what ever you want rather than having to build it a certain way for someone else. For instance i made this a 5 gun rack instead of a 4 gun rack like those built before this one. Also I went with a combination of cypress and pine to give it a different look.
