The Guns of Monocacy

Victory Wood Working just milled out a job for the bookstore at Monocacy National Battlefield; a rifle rack for the wooden dummy-rifles that parents do so like to buy.

The design was very simple with just three parts; bottom disc, top disc, and supporting column, all pine or poplar.  To keep the rifles from falling out I did some simple engineering and fancy cutting with my scroll saw on that top disc.

The poplar column is screwed to the base, which has had slots routed out of it to accommodate the rifle stocks.

Final assembly and the application of some Danish oil and this product is ready to go to the loading dock.

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy this new shop of mine?
