Re: making a stock

I wondered if that was a knot. It looks tight, but I'm with you. Avoid it if you can.

Re: making a stock

My pics are all in my head, along with the order I proceed in. Make sure you have ALL your metal work done. And, for a beginner, start looking around at carving sized chisels and gouges, or, decide how you're going to make them and where to come up with the high carbon steel . That'll take you a day or two. In the mean time, Les Brooks authored a thread over on AccutateReloading, if you're going to do the work without the aid of a mill. Here's the link, THE ACCURATE RELOADING.COM FORUMS If that doesn't take you there, the title of the thread is "Stockmaker show and tell". Should be easy to find with their 'search' feature. I think it's a "sticky" in the "gunsmithing" section.

Re: making a stock

I concur, that is a great thread to read if you want to attempt making a stock without the use of modern technology. I've read it many times, and still marvel at the talent some guys have. The "old timers" in this business are more talented than the new guys... Those of us who use modern machinery are a bit spoiled.
