    We'll leave names out of this for now.... But a friend of mine, and member on here, talked me into making him a Walnut stock for his Remington Versa Max. Apparently he couldn't find anyone that was willing to take on the task. I later found out why...
    It was a constant reminder of why I don't do shotgun stocks...

    Ended up with this..

    Very nice Joel! I'm sure that was a bit different from your normal stock job.

    Why are shotgun stocks more difficult?

    Nothing better looking than beautiful wood on a shotgun.

    That is one nice piece of work, thanks for sharing.

    I'm not set up to bore the through hole, and the way Remington designed the butt stock/receiver mating became problematic when switching to wood.

    No impossible, just took a little ingenuity..

    Oh gotcha, well as always beautiful work. Maybe one day I can buy one of your stocks.

    I did one about 10 years ago (the first and last one :)). It was for a friend who was 5'4" tall and left handed. Needless to say he couldn't buy one off the rack. I wound up using an old shopsmith that I set up as a horizontal drill press. Worked great once I got it rigged properly.

    Of course mine never looked as good as yours.:rolleyes:

    Incredible and beautiful work....again.
