Many times as a child I sat with my Grandpa as he built things in front of the fireplace at night. With wood he used a coping saw almost exclusively. Most things were lost in the tornado of ’74. This is a gun rack he built. It hung on the wall in his living room with a couple of .22’s in it. I found it in the shop the other day. It was nasty, covered with decades of dirt and grime. I cleaned it as best I could then gave it a couple of coats of lemon oil. It’s made from 3 different kinds of pine baseboard and trim material. All the joints need to be glued to make it structurally sound. Several places need sanding, I also bought a piece of green felt and fabric glue. I wish to retain its character yet dress it up a little. I wish to preserve it and use it. I’m not a wood worker so I’m looking for suggestions. I know there are several woodworkers here in the forum. What would you do if this were your project?
