Nice and clean Lew, I would not have guessed that was white oak, looked like Maple from the image shot! Can you explain the process to cut those nice clean butt stock holes?

Thanks, John. I cheated! The bottom is two pieces. The holes are cut through the first piece then that piece is placed on a solid bottom.

That is a pretty big project for your shop.  Real good job clean and simple. I have been pondering a gun rack for a long time but can't figure out how to lock them up to meet our local code. Is that a one size fits all hole for the butt stocks. What angle are the rifles,guessing 45 deg.? How long is it? I would need 3 of them in a row.

Thanks, Herb! It was designed for 30 cal M1 carbines. The butt stock holes were designed around that rifles dimensions. Yes the angle is 45°. Also the bottom tilts  up at the front at 3.5° to compensate for the butt stock angle. There are rare earth magnets in the top piece to hold the guns in place. I made some felt strips to line the top recesses to prevent the magnets from scratching the barrels. My friend will be finishing this rack and then apply the felt.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
