3 Creative DIY Gun Rack Ideas

SPONSORED

Finding the right storage solution for a firearm can often be as daunting a task as finding the right firearm itself. This summer, consider taking advantage of all that time spent at home by taking up a DIY project and building the perfect storage system for your firearms. Here are 3 simple yet creative ideas for a homemade gun rack.

1. A simple wooden gun rack is a straightforward, yet elegant solution. There is a large variety of design templates available online, and the main benefit of this type of gun rack is that it is easy to construct, taking only a day or two with the right tools. Consider building a horizontal gun rack from reclaimed wood, with simple hooks drilled in to hold one or two rifles. Reclaimed wood is very popular and is known for its affordability and rustic look. A simple staining can give a dignified antique appearance, perfect for hunting rifles.

2. For the more ambitious DIY-er, let your creative juices flow by building a hidden gun cabinet. This type of gun storage could be added behind a wall-mounted mirror or piece of art, or could become part of a piece of furniture, like a coffee table or an armoire. By using simple materials and matching them to your home’s decor, you can create a unique piece that offers utility as well.

3. Instead of an old-school or elegant design, why not make something with a more tactical look? Perfect for the gun owner with multiple firearms, a pegboard gun wall can instantly turn a garage, locked shed, or basement storage room into an armory. This solution is also great for rooms that aren’t very big, since it allows you to store your guns on the wall and maximize floor space. And don’t hesitate to store other shooting gear on it too, like belts and vests!
