Building a Wood Saddle rack?

Hello, has anyone out there built their own saddle rack?
I've got three western saddles I want to built saddle racks for. I want the kind that mounts to the studs in the wall. If anyone has plans or ideas on building that please free free to offer...

And I would like to make it out of wood...As I don't know how to weld etc., but have access to lumber and Carpenter equipment.

I have made all of my saddle racks, there is a picture to one of them in this thread New Saddle Project

There are fairly easy to make I have made some that mount to the wall, there are a lot of different ways to go about doing it.

I don't have a picture, but I've seen people use two 2x4s and set them up diagonally, meeting in the middle so that the saddle fits nicely right on top. I've seen a support that goes diagonal from the wall to underneath the rack as well to make it sturdier.

Wat we do is take a sturdy 3x6(I believe that's the size) and cut a log in half. We mount the halves onto the 3x6 and put a support underneath them. Then we attach the 3x6 to the wall so that the round part of the logs is facing up. If you want you can put some carpet ontop of the logs but we didn't do that. I'll see if I can get a picture for you later! It's really early here lol and I just woke up :P

Sound like what I want...

I have an idea of doing something similar but mounting 3 boards, fully supported, (3x6 for an example) equally apart but off the floor to a 2x6x10()?(cut to fit to what I want, as I haven't measured anything so I'm just guessing) and then mounting the 2x6x10 to the wall...That way it might be a touch more sturdy and if I ever want to take it down I could just unscrew the 2x6x10 board...any I'm still mulling it over it my brain...And will talk to night to my Dad who is a carpenter...
