I did this before I had to go back into business for myself, unfortunately I don't have the time to work steady at this as the business takes all of my concentration at this point, I do all of the work you see as well as the carving and engraving. It is a great stress reliever for me.
At first glance I was impressed with the detail and beauty of the gun, thinking this man is a collector of fine things. Upon reading and seeing some of your assembly pictures I started to imagine the time and effort you dedicated to this "hobby" in order to reach such an impressive final product. Thanks for the pictures and inspiration for what a man can achieve when he does not spend his spare time hypnotized in front of the boob tube.
Damn, I thought I accomplished something when I cleaned out my sheds and got the lawn mowed.
That is some AMAZING work! Please post some more pics if you have some.

Have you considered carving and finishing modern sporting rifles?
One of my now dead pals, a house building contractor, suffered an accident that left him paralized from the hips down. Confined to a wheelchair, he started wood carving as a hobby. Someone asked him to carve a design in a gun stock. Word got around about the quality of his carvings and pretty soon requests for his gun stock carving came in from all over the US. He could checker and carve scenes in a stock in 5-6 hours for a minimum of $700.00.
He told me the secret to his carving is not so much the carving itself but the ability to fix mistakes so that they look as though they are part of the work.
Anyone looking to make extra money might want to go out back, pick up a few branches and pull your jack knife out of your pocket.
