  1. Ram rifle stock

    I made this stock for a 7×57 Mauser to use to shoot hi-power silhouettes. That is why I carved a ram target on it. The stock is very similar to The Pig Gun .22 rim-fire stock. It is walnut. The barreled action is long gone. It didn't work out very well...

    My wife and I are both short; neither can sit on the bed and put on our socks easily. My wife pointed out the difficulty and encouraged me to do something about it. On a trip to a local wood store, she spotted a slab of Bubunga that she really liked, purchased it, and told me to get cracking...

    Photo 1: Chasing After the Wind: Whew. What a morning. It is windy a lot of the time in Kansas, and out on the open prairie where I live, it is almost always windy. But, when the weather forecast is for "windy", you know it is going to be terrible, and it is today. "Blustery," they call it...

    This was one of my first projects after opening my new workshop. It is a Norm Abraham design, built from the Plan. I like a lot of Norms Projects, they have good clean lines, which are not too complicated to make. My customers like this, as it keeps there costs down. The Timber is Swedish...

Lay it on your board in the middle, using your circular saw make a long cut on the angle you just drew using a straight edge.. Next...
