I remember taking 7th grade wood shop. For our final project we were given a number of things we could make. I chose the six gun gun rack made out of walnut with two ammo draws at the bottom. It turned out awesome. I kept mine and my pops rifles and shotguns in it until I graduated and moved out. Sure wish I had a picture or two of it. No idea what ever became of it. 

Anyone else ever make a gun rack in wood shop class?
Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    Didn't build it in wood shop but in my garage when I was maybe 16 or so. Turned out real nice, held 10 long guns and had storage below. Only problem was I made it to big to get up the stairs to my room, a critical mis-calculation on my part. Ended up cutting it in half and re attaching it once moved.

    Made one in shop class...I think I got a "C" on the project, but it held guns and someone in the family still owns it...

    Just a wall rack that held 3 guns, in 7th grade I believe, not sure where it ended up.

    Made one in shop, it must have been pretty good because when I went to get it to take home it was gone.

    I actually completed several muzzleloader kits using the buffers and tools available in shop class. My teacher drew the line at Mac10's when he saw me turning the barrels. That was when we brought guns to school to shoot in the basement range and gun racks weren't uncommon in the parking lot.
