DIY Wood Pistol Rack - Finish?
Made the decision to pull my pistols out of the egg-crate foam they've been stored in and finally get around to building a pistol rack. I've noticed that most commercial racks use felt or a similar material for resting the pistol on - is there a reason for this? It seems unlikely that bare wood would affect the finish at all.
While on the topic of finishes, do I need to be careful about using stain or poly or anything of the sort? Doesn't seem like it'd be something that would react to gun metal, baring some uncured poly or something like that.
Advice, suggestions or maybe some pre-made plans floating around out there?
