Here is my second Mesquite gun rack that I’ve put together. I’m getting hooked on this kind of stuff.

That is really nice -you did a great job of blending natural with symmetrical!

Very nice. I like it. I made one from a board from an old barn for my 1874 Sharp’s #1 back in the 80’s.

Very cool! Live edge and rustic… and yes- it’s addictive. :) How did you anchor the gun hooks to the slab?

rivergirl-I put 2 screws in each hook from the back, and set the wall hooks at 16”.

This is really great and I want to do something similar. How did you go about designing the hooks?

@Gator800 Thanks, Most hooks are basically the same design. I used to cut them out on the bandsaw and miter saw. Now I use my CNC to cut the curves but still use the miter saw.

Have your say...
