Now, that's something I've wanted for years now.  That looks just great! 

I'd have to sell the car and get a truck though. Sad

Thanks fellers. Actually, as far as dimensions, I sized it to fit in the trunk of my Audi A4 sedan. Put the seats down and it slides right in through the back. It's about 5 feet tall, but only 18 inches deep, and the wheels come off for transport. And as well as the cat, you can just see Abigail, my Labrador retreiver, peeking around the other side.

Haggis, I like the Cart, the Cat, and especially the Lab.  What color is she?  I have a 4 year old chocolate female.

Here is my latest design.  I designed this to fit in the back of a PT Cruiser.  I call it the "PT Shooter".

Hi,

I asked this in another forum, but this might be worth posting here as well....

Has anyone tired to put one of these 4 gun wall racks onto a folding golf bag cart?

Just made this one for traveling. I have a 4 wheeler we use for local shoots that needs to be hauled in the Dodge 4 door. Lately with the price of gas when we go to a match far away we drive the wife's KIA (35mpg) so had to make something that would fold up and hold what we need.

Hey... is it gun cart show time?   Grin

Our gun cart is made by Clay Graham and is called Ponderosa. It has room for 4 long guns, has an ammo box and a tool box. M'ette has not found time to "tool it up", but I guess when she's done with it, it will be hers....  Grin

Hi,

I don't think anybody much comes to this thread anymore.

Although it might take more time, I would go back to where you saw a cart you liked, and then use the profile of that member to send him a PM about plans .... as I said, it might take an hour or so to find a couple of plans and PM the owners, but I think you would have much more success that way ..

Best of luck!

When I can find my garage (at least the inside of it,) I would like to make me a guncart. Can't decide on the style but have some ideas.

My current cart is almost impossible to beat. Got it used for $100 and it has carried me and Old Top (and on one occasion 4 of our close friends) comfortably. It holds  5 long guns (originally it was 4 rifles and 1 shotgun,but I noched one opening to make 2 shotguns) It has a top compartment, and a large drawer, and inside of the top compartment has another compartent with a lid.

It is still working just fine

          Hey Everybody....


              I have been thinking of a cart and wanted to make a cedar coffin. Thought of making a poplar frame and covering it with cedar closet lining.
         The thing that is bugging me up is how to put wheels into it, with the narrower size of the base the only way I can think of is to have an axle housing sticking way out the sides of the bottom or the back side.
         Can anyone give some advise on this ?
         I figure it will have to be at least 15 to 16 inches at the base, flare out with shelf's at the wide part then taper back down toward the top to the first measurement. I thought of putting lips on the shelf's for ammo storage
         I think some tung oil or danish oil rubbed in would make the color or the wood just pop out at ya!
         I would have already started on this but being in the army all my tools are in the storage unit, so that has a big affect on what I make!!

After attending a few Cowboy matches and photographing several score of carts I decided I could build one myself. The total cost in materials was about $60 including the wheels I got from Northern. The wood is a good grade of birch 1/2 in ply on sale because it had a damaged edge($21). The ammo carrier and the cooler rack both fold up into the handle assembly and it all comes out and lays flat in the bed of my truck. I remove the guns(4) first as it is easier to store them in their cases. The accessories box in front is removable and I will pad it later for a seat. It actually is about 6" too high and would reduce the handle etc. by that dimension if I had it to do all over again. All in all it works very well and I will add more later such as a coat hanger, hand gun holder etc.

Louie, I have built a lightweight coffin, (full sized, used as a CAS vendor merchandise display and also as a cargo box on my MC trailer)
  and here's my recommendation.  Build up yer coffin box using ripped down pine sticks at the joints and to form reinforcing battons inside, and 1/4" panelling of some sort as the skin.  I used underlayment plywood.  the completed coffin is urethaned with satin exterior urethane.   Rip down 3/8" thick pine mouldings to cover the joints in the skin.  Use screws and glue on structural stuff, brad nails and glue on trim.  My full-sized coffin only weighs 30 lbs.

THEN frame up a basic, very light handcart ala the one's they used to move wooden crates and barrels back in the day and mount yer coffin on it using a couple of wingnuts or some such to secure the box to the frame of the handcart. The box would happily sit on the cart frame, but a couple of screws and wingnuts to hold it fast when used as a gun cart would unitize it but allow the box to be easily removed from the "chassis".  Then use the traditional method of attaching the wheels to the handcart chassis with a straight solid axle and clevis pin clips (again for ease of removal for transport/storage).  It'll look just like what it is, a coffin being moved about on a handcart.  Plow handles can be bought that would make great handcart vertical rails/handles.....  Interior should be kept very light.  Use simple cutout "rack" forms and either leather or pipe insulation to make upper and lower cradles for guns, etc.

here's my MC trailer with the coffin box...



It wasn't quite done in this pic.  The internal brace was temporary and is now cut out.  The trailer now has a tailgate, lights and fenders added.  the coffin box lid has a water-tiight gasket made up with white silicone and four "tool box latches" hold the lid secure for travel.  I've taken guns, ammo, clothes, merchendise, etc, everything except a gun cart needed for a three day shoot (stayed in a pard's RV) in the box, towed behind the bike.

Here it is in use as a vendor display.
