  1. Muzzle Loader Gun Stock Carving

    Here's a 54 caliber muzzle loader that was built by a nice gun maker some years ago that my buddy owns. The original finish was very dark and you could barely see a tiger maple pattern in the wood grain. My friend wanted to lighten the finish so the grain showed through like other classic period...
  2. Bison Engraving

    I engraved a Bison silhouette with a bison skull into the butt stock of this 30-30 rifle. I wanted to add history to the historic Winchester 30-30. The American buffalo seemed to work very well on this rifle. On the other side of the butt stock I engraved the registered brand of the gun owner...
  3. Cowboy

    The owner of this Marlin 30-30 is also a ranch owner. I engraved a cowboy silluoute with a skull of a long horn bull and added other details specific to his ranch such as the horse shoes and his "flying A" brand. He to wanted his brand engraved on the other side of the butt stock.
  4. Skunk and Scrolls

    This 10-22 belongs to a good friend of mine. He will probably be the only person who asks me to engrave a skunk on their rifle. To each his own, it was a lot of fun to engrave. I engraved a basket weave pattern over where the checkering would go and bordered everything with a scroll leaf pattern...
  5. Grizzly Bear & Basketweave

    The Grizzly Bear gun is a Colt 45 Long Rifle. It was a beautiful piece to begin with. The gun owner wanted a bear and gave me the artistic liberty to come up with something nice for him. I chose basket weave again and kept the engraving a lighter stain to help the bear pop out more. I tried...
  6. Mule Deer & Fish Scale

    This 270 rifle features the gun owners dream buck, all though I know he has come close. I know because this is my brothers rifle. He wanted a euro mounted Mule deer skull. I went with a fish scale for the grips. This gun had factory checkering already so I sanded it down and kept the fish...
  7. Squirel and Oak

    Believe it or not, well I guess you will believe when you look close, this is engraved on a pellet gun. This pellet gun was to be used by the client to persuade squirrels to visit a different yard so it was only fitting to engrave a squirrel. If you look close you can see the paw print on the...
  8. Razorback & Fishscale

    A good friend of mine wanted a unique Christmas gift for his father and had me engrave the stocks to this Savage .22/410 over and under that he had given his father. His father grew up in Arkansas and we decided that a Razorback would be fitting. I asked that he would have his father photograph...
  9. Hand Carved Gun Stock

    Here's a new carving project. It's an after market gun stock for a WWI Russian Military Mosin Naggant rifle. I asked around to my gun buddies for an old stock to play with and a friend came up with this gem. For an unknown reason, the barrel, bolt, and trigger case were all engraved with an...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm trying to figure out what finish to put on a mahogany tv stand that I'm working on. I tried a coat of Watco on some scrap. The 'red mahogany' Watco was kinda splotchy if you look at it at the right angle. And the natural Watco turned out a bit orange. It all looks completely dull, dead...
