Gun rack final
Here are a couple of shots of the finished gun rack.
I decided that the Liquid nail just was not going to work, so I dug it out and filled the cavities with wood glue, then drove a piece of dowel it to them. I center drilled the dowel and after putting lots of glue on the end of the collars that I made around the legs, I tightened them all the way up.
I think the dowel expanded a bit as I drove the 3 inch screw in to them, so that tightened them up even better.
I feel that they will hold.
What are your thought about mounting this to the guys wall. He has a two story house so the studs should be on 16 " centers and the rack is 24 inches wide.
I am leaning towards two screws at the top and two in side the little ammo cabinet.
I plan to carve two small 3 D stars and place them over the screws on the exposed top portion.
It will have two pump 12 gages on it so that should hold it up there pretty good.
Let me know what you think. I have a few days until I plan to deliver it.
When the enemy is in range, so are you.
