Default Home-made rotary rifle rack

I decided $300 was too steep for a "real" one, so went to Lowe's and got:
(1) 1x15" pine round $6.61
(1) 1x24" pine round 15.81
(2) 1-1/4" Galvanized floor flange 9.75@
(1) 1-1/4"x 30" galvanized pipe 14.20
(12) 3/4" disc magnets 2.98
(1) 12" Lazy Susan 1,000# capacity 8.97

Then I went home and laid out spots for 12 long guns. I could have fit more, but needed room for scopes and operating rods, bolts, etc. Shotguns wouldn't take as much room.

I traced and routed out spaces for the stocks on the big round and used a hole saw, bandsaw and sanding drum to make notches in the upper rack.


Stained and sealed the wood with verathane, then screwed the lazy Susan on the bottom of the big round. I painted the galvanized parts black and screwed them to the rounds.

I countersunk magnets into the rifle cutouts in the upper round, but found they weren't strong enough, especially with the wooden hand guards, so I used screws and elastic hair bands stolen from the granddaughter to secure the rifles. I'm going to glue felt on the cutouts to help protect the rifles, just haven't found any felt yet.

It fits quite well into my old vault, though I might need to make another one...or two.

Total cost was about $75

VERY NICE!

I'm envious of your skill. Every time I take on a wood working project it ends in disaster.

Go to Michels or Joanns for the felt. They sell it in squares or on a roll.
Yes I've been to both stores on many an occasion and yes I'm perfectly confident in my manhood.

Very Nice!

Now, if only I can copy it and make it motorize then that will be the Ultimate rotary rack!

Amazing work on that. I may have to build one of those now.... Like Kcstott said, check Michaels or Joanns for felt. They also sell sheets of closed cell craft foam that would work pretty well for that as well. I use that stuff as padding on the cheek rests of my PRS stocks.

Good idea with the magnets, I imagine some more powerful rare earth type magnets might work a bit better.

Those fabric stores have been lifesavers in some of my projects I do around the house ... and it doesn't challenge my manhood at all shopping there.

I'll get by Joann's -- that's where I buy the faux sheepskin fabric we use to cover the sponge heads for the cannon. Didn't think of them for felt.
Which reminds me of what my mother used to do as a "joke" -- she'd come up, finger your shirt and then ask, "Nice fabric: Is it FELT?" As she pinched you real hard!
She was a First Lieutenant, Army Nursing Corps...and had a strange sense of humor.

I'm inspired by your work; I'm going to make a lazy susan for a corner cabinet. I've put that off for 16 years...
