I had a request from a individual to add a draw under one of the gun racks I make and this is what I came up over the weekend.

Now I am going to try and build another one with some carvings in it.

Thanks for looking.

The one on top of the draw unit is actual a shorter version of the tall rack bolted to the draw unit.

I used red oak to make it out of.
I making another one now but I wish I had some wider walnut to make it out of.

I did go back and add red felt to the draw. Wasn't sure if they wanted it or not till they got back in touch with me.

:rolleyes::rolleyes: John; Mite I suggest gluing a set of runners inside the case above the drawer and out of sight to keep the drawer from tilting down when you pull it out? I will also usualy make a stop on the inside to keep the drawer from being pulled all the way out. I make it on a screw hanging on the inside of the front panel so you can swing it out of the way if you want to take the drawer out. Any ideas for a locking system?? Excellent crafsmanship !!!

I did attach some stops to back of the draw to keep it from being pulled out.
You tilt the draw up and pull out at the same time.
Stops are glued and braided in place.

I thought about doing something like you mention, but wanted it to rest on the table when opening worried about weight in the draw causing it to possibly tip over.

Possibility of it tipping over is low but any slight tilt forward I would be worried about the guns shifting and hitting.

Hopefully that makes sense.

How did you do the felt/material at the top? I'm on the board of directors for our local historical society and need to make a rifle rack for 4 Hawkens and a Kentucky.

I cut the felt to size and used 3m spray adhesive, i tried the cheaper sprays and always go back to 3m it works better for me.

Very nice, thanks for the picture of the completed one. Now I visualize one with a top case on it with glass in the doors.......

Thanks all.

Jim It is built out of red oak and the carving where stained cherry. Pictures change the color of it.

I have a carvewright carving machine it took maybe 3 hrs to do all the carvings.
