Introduction: Horseshoe Gun Rack

Display your favorite firearm in rustic style!

Step 1: Measure Board

Measure & cut length of old barn wood to size of gun. The stock and the part of the barrel will stick out past the wood . This one measured 23". Find the spot between the stock And the trigger that will sit flush with the bottom of the barrel- so when mounted the gun is level.

Step 2: Cushion the Horseshoe

Cut and slide plastic tubing on the inside curve of the shor

Step 3: Mount Horseshoe

Nail one side of horseshoe to side of board. Do not go past back side off board or it will not lay flat against the wall. Remember to measure the off set between the grip & barrel ( the contact points on each end). This one was 11/2" difference.

Excellent idea. I don't have a gun, but I can hold some lumber with this.
