Introduction: Wall Mounted Weapon Rack
Cheap alternative to expensive weapons rack.
(gun, many guns that would necessitate an entire rack sword, staff, anything that will fit)
Step 1: Materials
coping saw or jigsaw
drill & bit
counter sink bit
screws (i used 2 1/2" drywall screws)
wood 1 inch thick by 4 inches wide whatever length you need. (10 swords 4 ft long, 3 swords 13 inches long)
paint, or stain
optional leather of felt for scuff-proofing
Step 2: Trace and Cut
trace the templates (overlay for as many or few as you need) cut with jigsaw. Test fit. if more space is needed, trim with coping saw.
Step 3: Drill, Sand and Paint
drill support board if needed (i normally place on on the top, middle and bottom.)
picture of support after finished, it is just left over 1x4 mounted horizontally. drill and counter sink two screws on each side of the rack (outside) into support beams (inside)
paint how you like (black or red lacquer, metallic, stain, whatever your taste.)
optional cut and glue felt or leather into the openings for scuff proofing.
Step 4: Mount Display
mount to wall preferably into stud by pre-drilling holes and countersinking them at 16' intervals on support boards.
Step 5: Free Template
using my template (yes i drew it.) repeat template1 for as many holders as you need.
Step 6: Bonus
