I need to make a few bow racks for the grand kids . Can some of you post photos of your bow racks for me to get some ideas .

I am looking to make simple small racks, {4 bows} to store the bows horizontal,unstrung in their rooms .

Thanks Pete

I decided to use bike hooks from canadian tire instead of wood pegs. Worried about bows getting knocked off.

"Horizontal? Dont be affraid of the vertical! "

HaHa a 3 year old also lives in the house , so long sticks dangling in reach is a bad idea.

A simple rack made from a 1x4. The pegs are pieces of carbon arrow with felt wrapped around them.

This rack is floor to ceiling, but the style could make a nice shorter version.

My bow rack is a little different design than most.

Padded arms, holds 6 to 8 bows, places to hang quivers and other accessories. When not in use doubles as a handy place to sit and ponder all things archery.

They're all nice, but Ken, your bow rack is Awesome. That's the coolest bow rack I've seen. I love it. Lots of nice bows in this thread too, thanks.

Thanks Throwback and Frisky. the heads are cut out and carved, The shafts are notched for the heads and nocks. Then they are wrapped just like building arrows. Full height turkey feathers. They are independent and can be hung horizontal. That way they will hold twice as many bows in the vertical position,or you could just make one for 10 bows. Frisky's and dhermon85's are cool also. Merry Christmas. >>>----> Ken

By the way- the rack I showed isn't mine. I'd just like to build one.

Very nice racks everyone

From: Bob Rowlands
Date: 26-Dec-17




Simple as it gets, a snap to make and mount, and nice and functional. 2' length of 1x4 and 4- 1/2" dowels mounted on an angle. Hang the bows unstrung by their strings. I have ours hanging off 16d nails in the garage. Out of the way and can't come off. A snap to grab when needed.

Nice Jeff, when are you going to build some bows, Ha!Ha!

I would have thought I died and gone to heaven with all those bows and bow rack, Mr. Durnell that is the way I would build a bow rack.

I'm using an old accordion hat rack because after passing another one of my bows forward I have only two and one almost finished, but I have two more to build and I will now have to build a fitting bow rack like Jeffs.

Not a problem I have some old cedar slabs that I brought back from Alabama.

jeff durnell i just saw that photo of your bows. that's the finest rack of bows i've ever seen on this site, and thats no bs. that is one fiiine piece of work. very nicely done dude.

I've made a few using barnwood, cedar, old rustic wood etc. All of them have either deer hooves or antler to hold the bows. This one has Cypress boards from my wife's Great grandfather's old barn.

How did that pic get there? Here is a pic of one of my euros. depending on the rack shape and size you can make a bow rack out of one.

Mike E,

Like that mirror! Helluva idea.

This is what I came up with. Pegs are old door hinge pins with rubber O rings on them to protect the limbs.

I thought I was bad. Some of you guys have waaaay too many bows!

Sickos...

Awesome racks guys..quick question and maybe I should start a different thread , I'm new to this just wondering I was told I can leave my bow strung and hang it horizontally if I shoot it regurily.I notice most of ypur bows unstrung,has anyone had a problem leaving them strung..and if I should start a other thread with this question someone tell me and I will

From: 2 bears
Date: 14-Jun-18




3 under I answered your PM. I didn't know this thread was back up.It does no harm to leave them strung in a temperature controlled environment.I don't leave them strung if I an not shooting them but the two or three daily shooters stay strung. Then I rotate them once in a while. I have a 27# bow that I warm up with and it has been strung for years. Got curious and weighed it a while back and it is still spot on. Another concern is that someone than does not know better might dry fire one.Shoot straight. >>>----> Ken

I agree with 2 bears. The ones I'm shooting stay strung. The others I store unstrung. All in a controlled environment. Mine are all laminated bows. Selfbows are a different story.

From: 2 bears
Date: 14-Jun-18




Thanks soap creek. I forgot about self bows. Never leave them strung. In fact I really baby mine. I try not to leave it strung over an hour or so without a rest. >>>----> Ken
