Rifle Cleaning Stand From Scrap

Introduction: Rifle Cleaning Stand From Scrap

1) Consider dimensions that will work with multiple rifles, if applicable.
2) Cut notches for butt and stock/barrel such that the rifle ends up roughly level.
3) Foam/rubber can be wedged in the notches, under the butt and barrel, to keep the gun secure (instead of adding a vice mechanism).
4) Cut a template from paper and trace on end pieces if extra detail is desirable.
5) Use Titebond to glue end pieces of plywood, etc. for extra thickness and detail.

    Nice unit! If I could get the dimensions of your baseplate or a rough blueprint I can take it from there. Handy to travel with too so you have a cleaning stand when on an extended hunting trip!
