No matter how many times I see it, I can’t get over the Wayne’s World reference when I see a gun or bow rack. It doesn’t matter that its recipient really does need one and it will de-clutter an entire area in a room. It’s just difficult to think of something more Southern-Bubba than a weapon rack such as this.
I even stained it a walnut color, which I honestly think makes it several times worse. I tried to add a little flare around the edges and some cut-outs and rounding along the supports, but that made it worse still. I thought I was doing well to get 12 recurves stacked inside of 4 feet, but then, to my horror, I realized what I had just built.
So I have no choice really. I must stand up, hat in hand, and state for the record “Hi, my name is Sean. I did indeed make the equivalent of a gun rack.” I suppose Stacy and I will have lots to talk about at the next woodworkers’ support group meeting.
