I saw that there was a 2x4 contest and I needed a gun rack, so here is the 2X4 Airsoft Gun Rack! 2X4s are super easy to come by and I got mine for free!

Step 1: Get a 2X4.

I used a 12 foot long one. This project used about half of it.

Step 2: Measure and Cut Your Wood.

This is a really neat idea. The one change I am going to make is using wooden dowels instead of screws. Mark the back just like you did for the placement. Using a drill bit the same size as your dowel, drill holes when you marked for your guns. Then measure off the dowels, I marked then 1/4" longer than my guns were wide, and cut them. After they're cut, I glued them into the holes.
