  1. Remington 700 thumbhole sporter stock

    This stock was carved from the first walnut log I harvested and sawed with my new sawmill. It's dried slowly so the wood is both dry and seasoned. Dried too quickly, the lumber will have internal stresses that are undesirable in a finished gunstock. I sawed this lumber 1" thick as slabs and each...
  2. Ruger 10/22 maple and wild cherry gunstock

    I carved this gunstock to fit a Ruger 10/22 with a target weight barrel. I'm giving first refusal to a customer who ordered a figured maple Ruger stock. I don't know what you call this type of quilting. It's from a tree grown in East Tennessee, so doubt it's big leaf maple. It's also not as...
  3. Refinish SKS Gun Stock

    I refinished the stock on my SKS rifle. I applied furniture stripper and scraped the finish off. I sprayed it with Krud Kutter and used a soft brush to get the remaining finish/stripper off. I then put the stock in the bath tub with very hot water and used a soft brush to remove all residue...
  4. Laminated Benchrest gunstocks - walnut - maple - cherry

    Laminated benchrest gunstocks made from walnut, maple and cherry laminates. The top stock in the first photo was the pattern stock used to carve the rest of them. I'm going to make another one for a benchrest rifle I'm going to build soon. The customer who got the first 3 stocks sent me a 6mm...
  5. Zebrawood varmint/target gunstock

    This varmint/benchrest stock is one of the very few solid, non laminated, stocks I've carved. It's made from zebrawood and the marble texture of the wood is fantastic. Only one ugly problem… Zebrawood is brittle and you can see a lot of splinters in the last photo a closeup of the inlet area. I...
  6. Rifle Case

    The English Whitworth rifle was the first true long range muzzleloading rifle. It was sold to civilians in England and saw military service with the Confederate army in the Civil War. In trained hands, it was highly lethal out past 800yds. Many Federal troops fell to the Whitworth, not the least...
  7. "Shiloh Prairie" - Hand Carved Panoramic Scene Featuring an 1874 Shiloh Sharps Rifle

    Scanning through this site it seems there's a good mix of pro's, hobbyists, and somewhere in between … all are covered quite well. Those who do things as a hobby can take their time, often excessive time - which means some of you "amateurs" produce a level of quality and detail that those in a...
  8. Rifle-Shaped Sign

    Pretty simple oak sign I made for my little cousins' room.
  9. Ruger 10/22 thumbhole stock made from Maple and wild cherry. I broke it!

    Woops, I was just finished sanding to 120 grit and was going to start with rasps and files on the thumbhole area, when I dropped it! The figured maple shattered in the action area where the stock is only one laminate thick. This maple was beautiful! It looks like flames from a fire and the...
  10. 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...
  11. 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.
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. Deer Gun Stock

    Finished this request today for an upcoming shooting competition. This will be presented to the top shooter of the day. Each month they ask me for a different type of prize. Last month I did another deer head for them which you can see in my gallery. Can't wait to design next months already...
  16. 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...
  17. Ruger 10/22 laminated walnut & maple target gunstock

    I made an early Christmas present for myself. This stock is made from some scrap walnut that wasn't suitable for customers. You can see the place I repaired a 1/4", 1/8" and a 1/16" crack. I used sawdust and epoxy to fill the crack and after it hardened, I sanded it flush with the rest of the...
  18. American Black Walnut gunstock for a Remington 600

    A few weeks ago, I uploaded a couple of projects for Remington 600 stocks carved from laminated and colored birch. The laminates were made by Ruttland Plywood and that type of laminate is what almost all the custom stock carvers use to make laminated stocks. This is the same type stock, but...
  19. Black Cherry & American Black Walnut gunstock for a Remington 600

    This stock is very much like the other thumbhole stocks I've carved to fit a Remington 600/660 rifle. This one is one of my favorites. It's wild cherry on the outside and black walnut and cherry on the inside laminates. The cherry has a lot of grain and color showing. I've wet sanded it with...
  20. Gun Cabinet Organizer

    I built this over the weekend for a friend at work. He wanted something to go inside his gun safe to keep his rifles from banging in to each other. I designed it in sketchup first so he could see what it would look like and then built it to fit the inside dimensions of his safe. This is made...
