Whether to stain a first gun rack? Light pine.
There is finally a rack for the fourteen rifles: SKS, Enfields, FR8, Mauser, Garands. At age 58, a very late bloomer for this.
Even though reddish-brown or medium (etc) brown wood is very attractive, in a small hobby room with white walls, do you find that a white or beige color on the rack creates a nice contrast to the numerous brown or yellowish colors of the guns' wood and stains?
This white pine -from Loew's- at first glance gives the impression that the milsurps stand upright by themselves, with all the metal, wood and green/beige slings very clear and sharp.
Would white paint to match the walls highlight them the best?
