Made a gun rack out of Cocobolo.
I have never worked with it and it is pretty heavy wood,
I tried to shoot a braid thru it and it went in about a 1/4" and bent to hell.

The wood I started with
(sorry for the crappy pic, taken with a cell phone)





The finished product

NIce. What did you finish it with?

the scale looks funny to me. I am assuming its for handguns??

how about a pic with a gun in the rack for those of us with limited imaginations.

I'm thinking that it would be great for revolvers...

It is for Handguns.

I used a lacquer finish on it.

looks nice, but just imagine how many nice Cocobolo 1911 grips that much wood could make.
