Home Depot and Lowe's are two retailers that offer many lumber options appropriate for furniture projects such as gun racks. A variety of hardwood and softwood boards are available from both companies.
Home Depot and Lowe's both offer a wide selection of lumber for strength, durability and decoration. Both company websites allow users to browse lumber selection, check product availability and pick up online purchases in-store for free.
Before purchasing materials, woodworkers should consider the usage of their proposed gun racks. Lumber purchasing considerations include size, quantity, indoor or outdoor usage, pliability and strength, in addition to attractiveness and budget. One customer might choose pine since it works better for carving decorative accents, but another might choose oak for its strength.
