  1. Walnut varmint stock for a Mauser 98

    This stock was carved from a huge American Black Walnut blank. Too bad there wasn't room in the blank to carve two stocks. "The blank was quartersawn and shows some fiddleback. I only sanded the stock to 120 grit and rubbed in one thin coat of tung oil. When the stock is finish sanded to at...
  2. Laminated American walnut and black cherry benchrest gunstocks

    Two benchrest or f-class style laminated gunstocks made with American walnut and black cherry slices. Each stock is made from the same pattern, but each stock has a different look because the interior pieces on each were different. One stock is inletted for a Remington 700 short action and the...
  3. Laminated rifle stock using maple, walnut & cherry.

    I just finished this stock. It was made from rough sawmill lumber that I dried, laminated and carved. I make laminated stocks for several reasons. The main one is stability for target shooting, the other big reason is the time needed to dry a thick blank and the high cost of fancy wood in sizes...
  4. How to use a 2 hp router for a precision carving...

    This is a short tutorial showing the steps of carving a rifle stock. The first photo shows the stock to be duplicated being set up. I use a laser to make sure everything is straight by putting a 3' rod in the rear bolt hole. The laser line on the rod helps get the top of the stock 90 degrees to...
  5. Rifle Display Case

    Had the opportunity to honor a friend who recently retired with 28 yrs of service. He is a serious woodworker, so I was super nervous. The pine came from a 100+ year old church down the street. My LJ friend, tweetdriver, donated the wood and his time to help build the box. Straight spar...
  6. Rifle Stock (Reshape and Refinish)

    Hey folks! One of my other hobbies, other than woodworking, is shooting airguns. Yes, a grown man shooting BB guns in his backyard! ;) Once I got into the world of higher end adult airguns, I realized that there are some pretty high quality equipment out there, not just the stuff that is...
  7. Remington 721 thumbhole left hand stock, right hand action.

    This thumbhole stock is for a Remington 721. The owner is left handed, but he has a right hand rifle. I carved this stock from black walnut, wild cherry with a sugar maple accent down the center. I thought I had a nice piece of figured walnut for the sides, only one problem, the best looking...
  8. Laminated Cherry stock for a Winchester M-70

    This stock was carved from a laminated cherry blank. The stock took about an hour to carve and another hour to sand out the router marks. The forend design was inspired by a Cooper M21. The stock has a coat of tung oil and I'll rub it out with 0000 stainless steel wool when it's dry to the...
  9. Handcarved Replica of a Circa 1884, Springfield, 45-70, "Trapdoor" Rifle

    These photos are of a Circa 1884 Springfield 45-70 Trapdoor Rifle that I carved a couple of years ago. Regrettably, it is so long-nearly 52"-that the photos don't (in my "humble" opinion) do it justice. I was fortunate enough to be permitted to borrow a rifle from a relative for almost an...
  10. Torsion Box Router Table with Micro Adjustable Fence and Dial Indicator

    I wanted a router table that would be complimentary to the CNC machine I use on a daily basis. The criteria was a large very flat surface and a fence with micro adjuster and a dial indicator. I wanted an alternative to using the CNC for every project but did not want to lose any accuracy. I...
  11. Remington 660 & 600 Magnum Laminated rifle stock

    I just finished a custom stock for a Remington 660. (It would also fit a Model 600 Remington 350 Magnum.) The original rifle was made in the early 1960's when laminated stocks were new and radical. The magnum model of both the 600 and 660 was available in 350 Remington Magnum and 6.5 Remington...
  12. Black Walnut & Cherry laminated Remington 660 & 600 Magnum Stock

    This stock was carved from black walnut & cherry. To get the laminations laid out like the original, the center section was thickness sanded to 0.444 and the two cherry sections were sanded to 0.333. It's a lot easier to lay out a laminated stock, when you create an original stock. Making a...
  13. 1940's savage 22 stock refinish

    here is a rifle stock from the 1940s made out of walnut…A guy seen some of my other stock work and wanted to know if I could refinish the stock that came on the rifle he learned how to shoot on. The last two pics are of the stock as I got it. it had water stains, oil stains, the finish was...
  14. one more world war 2 rifle refinish

    here is another rifle stock refinish that I have done for some one. it was made in the 1940s and used by the Russians in world war 2. This rifle was checked to make sure it had no collectors value so I did not ruin any thing worth a ton of money. As you can see in the last pic when the rifle...
  15. Firewood Ballistics

    In the summer, I sawed wood for my shop stove. When I went out to grab an armload one morning, a shiny spot caught my eye. Upon close inspection I discovered that it was a spent round from shooting my S/W 357 magnum in the woods. I thought, hey why don't I sand this and see what it looks like...
  16. "Ike's Gamble" - A D-Day Tribute

    "Ike's Gamble" -A D-Day Tribute- Well my first project on Lumberjocks was also a WW2 firearm related piece which caused a bit of a stir, so I'm curious if this one will as well (although the other one featured the "bad guys" which may have added some fuel to the fire). On this 71st anniversary...
  17. R9 Furniture

    Whew! I'm glad this one is done! I have been on and off with this project for quite some time. Years in fact! I made this for a fellow airgunning friend. It is black walnut, with ebony and quarter sawn sycamore for the grip cap. I did the inletting with the router, drill press, x-y vise...

  19. Gun Stock Refinish

    I have had this rifle for about 10 years, and has been neglected for most of them. I don't know why, but one day it just looked at me the right way, and I was inspired to refinish it. The stock was originally a very blonde wood (birch) that had 40+ years of grime on it from less than careful...
  20. Ambrosia Maple, Walnut & Cherry benchrest rifle stock

    This stock is made from ambrosia maple, walnut and a center section of wild cherry. The finish is just a coat of tung oil and it's only been sanded to 120grit. Ambrosia maple is so hard that it takes a great finish. You can go to 600 grit for a mirror smooth finish. I love the natural desert...
