About: I'm a high school student who loves making and hacking stuff!

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!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

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.

The top 2 pieces are 38 inches long.

The bottom pieces are 18 inches long and cut at a 45 degree angle.

Step 3: Cut 2 Pieces 10 Inches Long.

Step 4: Screw the 10 Inch Pieces to the Long Boards.

Step 5: After Screwing the Boards Together, Lay the Guns on the Boards and Mark Where You Want the Mounts.

Step 6: Polyurethane!

Step 7: Use Application Instructions on Can.

I recommend using a foam brush and 2 coats.

Step 8: Screw in the Screws.

Step 9: Set the Guns on the Screws and You're Done.

I still have to mount it to my bedroom wall, and I'll do an I'ble about that too!

Step 10: Please Vote for This Project in the 2X4 and Leftovers Contest!!!

    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.
