did you do this in easel? i am planning to make a long gun rack for a spare closet, just havent gotten around to planning out the slots for the base.
I used sketchup to design it and then used sketchucam to produce the gcode.
Does it work well for you? This project looks good.
Yes I really like using it for projects like this. It’s pretty simple once you get the hang of it.
So is the gcode and Design a download you would share?
I could probably share the design if you have sketchup. I wouldn’t want to share the gcode because I don’t have an xcarve and I wouldn’t want to risk someone trying to run it.
I’d love to carve this if you wouldn’t mind sharing the sketchup file
Here is the file. The bottom board isn’t in it since it is just a rectangle that measures 10" x 7 1/4" This file was made so I could cut it out using sketchucam so you may have to play around with it.Handgun Rack.skp (48.3 KB)
good call bro. never ever encourage people to share the g-code.
Wow, this picture is the only reason that makes me not want to be canadian! I want to shoot me some geerrns
What’s a gern?
The racks look very nice.
I cant help but wonder why you wouldn’t have a rail on the back side of the grip to prevent the gun from sliding out of the rack?
It is a quick draw rack?
Normally with the bigger handguns they will sit on a downward slope towards the front of the rack. I’m guessing this is a compact model in the picture?
Great idea. I will bring it up with @DonaldR.Simmons tomorrow when he gets this prototype. We may enhance the design and reshare the mod.
Yes. Compactish. EAA witness pavona.
Sorry, my redneck is a bit rusty. Haven’t been down to south park in a while. good to know there are plenty of friendly faces here… humble folks without temptation…
