Hooks/hanger

Recommended Posts

Get a nice slab of timber with bark on as many edges as poss, ideally a inch thick. Make sure its longer + wider than the dimensions of your gun. Give it a good sand. Now the fun part. Go find some rusty old gate hangers, out of a old barn or wherever, grind off the thread to a point, sandblast them, then hammer them (chisel out a square hole roughly 1/2 to 3/4 of the thickness of the hanger) into the timber at set lengths of your gun to hang. Dab of gorilla glue on the end as well just to be sure. 

Varnish the lot (including metal) 

Sounds **** but the rustic look works and ive been making them for years, also as coat hangers.

All sold on the bay years ago. If I could source gate hinges/hangers in a rusty state I'd make more. Bloody expensive on the bay, and new ones whilst cheap look rubbish. 

So if anybody has any spare in bucket rusting away I'll take them off your hands :good:

2 pieces of wood 4” x 1 3/4” x 3/4”

2 pieces of dowel 3/4” x  2 5/8”

2 small wooden drawer handles

And you’ll need something to drill a 3/4” hole with.

I had some (brass leather covered) from Powells years ago, but can't see them now.  I did find these;

More extensive searching may turn up others as these look pretty basic for a tenner!

The dowel is glued into the batten and I knocked a nail through the side for extra support. The knob had a nut set into the back side so I drilled a hole in the end of the dowel and screwed a pin into it with a spot of glue on the thread then cut the head of the pin off.

Cheers
