As I said in the DIY $20 Rifle Rack video, this is not my original idea, I got this idea from 7.62x54r.net.
I went to lowes and bought some shelving board. I then cut off two 28inch lengths of board.
Next I snapped a line about 1/2 down the width of one of the boards, and then marked several equal sections (one per gun).
I used a hole saw to cut out a hole centered on each mark, and then ripped the board down the line.
Next I took a 6 foot shelving board and cut it in half to make two 3 foot sections (if you are building a rack for M-forgeries or other shorter barrel rifles this will be a little too small – it is a couple inches too tall for my 16.5 barreled AR.
At one end of each long board I laid the smaller half of the board with the half-circles cut into it and then marked the long board.
I then laid a straight edge on the long board and drew a line from the mark to the other edge of the board about 1 foot from the opposite edge.
I repeated on the other long board and the cut along the line.
I glued and screwed the drilled 28 inch board to the 3 foot boards – one at each end.
Next I took one of the drilled boards and glued and screwed it to the smaller end of the 3 ft. boards.
To keep everything organized, I cut some wood strips and framed around the bottom of the stand to make individual
I painted it and put it on top of a small shelf in my office.
As always, I hope this is useful to you.
