That's a fine, fine still life. I just could see there was good "grain" in that stock as you were working it.

I just sold off all my traps but a few I kept for nostalgia

Had a pretty afternoon to shoot a little. 3'' dot at 25 yards. The high wild one was a ragged patch that I went ahead and drove down and it shot off.

WOW, that's just Amazing, Mike!

THAT is how a good gun should be built and how it should look.  it's Perfectly imperfect, as it SHOULD be.  if it was totally perfect, it would NOT be as good as what you've done, Mike.  period.

i am a humbled kit builder in awe of a master scratch builder.  it's ALL about the stock work!  that's what separates kit bashing with a mostly pre-made stock to creating a stock from a plank of wood.  "stockmaker" sez it all.

Beyond me!   :wavey:

Gotta have a gift and a ton of experience to do this from scratch. 

Hat's off!!    :thumbs:
