I need to start thinking about designated storage. The assorted soft and hard cases are in various closets and under beds a rather scattered.
I'd like to be functional and  it needs to be nice, not look like made out of scrap pallets.  I have a couple ideas rolling around in my head but would like to see yours...
Hold 8-12 long guns.
a way to store, hang, or set pistols.
a door / shelf for pellets and supplies.
I am thinking something like JoeV did here... I also like the "Lazy Susan" circular style.
Then there are also these corner units

I wouldn't want that many out in the open.
Maybe one or two wall hangers. Or something like a miniature old jail gun rack with a locking bar that you could stand four or six up in would be what I would want.

Actually, this is where the Discovery lives when not in use.  So I guess one could call it a gun rack. 
Because I donít do power tools, a friend [who is handy] built one for me and one for my lad.

Scott,

I have one installed on the wall of my bedroom closet, it's hidden by clothes, one the wall behind my bedroom door and the last one is in the basement in the same room with my targets and pellet trap.  I had to do something because I was running out of space to lean them against   ;D

My bedroom door locks and I have my long gun pb safe in there too.

You could probably secure the rifles with a 2"x2" on the side where the wrists of the stocks line up.  Another thing is it doesn't look too complicated to make if anyone is inclined.  I was not inclined obviously and I waited for them to go on sale lol

Thanks,

Taso

Have made several of these folders with different gun capacities.



And made this table model to display some of Gene's works at last years Fun Shoot.



Getting geared up to make several wall mount vertical shelves. We're moving and my future Man Cave will have a gun closet. Can't wait to build these and get some sort of organization.
Although it may be scary to actually SEE them all in one place.

Hey Scott. I like that second one. Might have to build one of those for my growing collection.

You can take a pattern/design and spend lots of money on whatever kind of wood you desire. And can make gun racks anywhere from a nice home display to museum quality. It just depends on what you want to spend.
:)
And it also depends on the equipment you have available and the amount of time you want to dedicate to the project.
But here are some great plans of different types of racks.

That looks perfect!

I was just thinking of making one to go behind a door, but didn't think of turning them sideways to save space.

Ruff sawn cedar is abundant here. I have various stacks of it all around the place. I have made several racks and displays and it's time to make more.

Unfortunately, no table saw, power hand tools only at my house.
Now that link you provided is fantastic.
I have been searching online for just such a data base.

Scott,

You could probably use a drill hole saw for the top barrel part instead of cutting out the scallops.  I think it would be easier and look better than by hand with a saber saw.

Yep, depending on the depth of the top piece, I would buy a 1x12 and mark a center line length wise. Then make the spacing spots for each bay, 3" or 3.5". Then use a 2" drill mounted hole saw to cut the holes. Then saw the board in half, to have two 6" boards with the gun bays. Or use a 1x10 or 1x8 board, depending on the depth you determine you need due to scopes mounted and such.
