Soon to be house has a concrete vault with door (Fort Knox).

Anybody got a good source or design for building rifle racks, or should I just start with 2x4's and have at it? Size range would be from long sticks like 700PSS down to M4gery.

Also considering starting with a cheapie bookcase to make a double stacked rack.

I am going to give this a try.



I have a 2" hole saw, I need to know the right way to cut the wood only 1/2 the hole, the pilot bit will be at the edge of the 1 x 4 ???? How do I do this?

Easiest way is to just dril in the middle of a 2x6 and the rip down the center.

Now you have two.

Why not just take 2 2x4's and clamp them together and then use the hole saw to cut the holes. Same principle, you have just completed two of them when finished.

Good idea, except, if I cut wood the way I shoot, one side maybe bigger than the other.

What if I placed the 2 pieces of 1 x 4 side by side together, hold them with a vise and cut the holes with the pilot bit going right in the crack between the 2 pieces?

That is what I was thinking... I have to go to Home Depot. Crap! my wife has a "TTD list" (things-to-do) for me.

I think this would be the best way... If you clamp two boards side by side and try to drill out from between them with a hole saw it might work but I woud just use one 2X6 or a 1X8 or whatever and then rip it like tslex suggested.

After varnishing, even stain and varnish (Minwax), lining cutouts and bottom section with carpet (you can get a roll of automotive carpet at Walmart) glued on with contact cement. Contact cement will hold the carpet better than "carpet glue".

Even though there in a vault are you going to put a lock bar over them?

I am building that rack to show off my rifles, then back to the safe. Or to use it at the range.

For AR's, look to msnos's products - www.plastixplustx.com/ar15/ar15.html
And he is always looking to develop more, so I bet you could discuss your needs and get him to make anything you need. I have a stand for my AR, and am ready to order a new one.


I love this for a wall mount.
