New stock
 
Started today building a new stock for a 100year old Marlin 1892. Not very big stock, but not easy for me. Using this piece of AAA Claro, wish me luck. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...1042913aa7.jpg

Still looking clunky, but made some progress today, buttplate semi inletted, and some general shaping. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...3aa7c2a863.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...822557d03b.jpg

Nice piece of wood. What are you going to use to fill in the knotholes?

Save some of the sanding dust and mix it with an epoxy.

This is going to be a really cool one:bthumb:

Love the patina on the octagonal barrel.

Any chance of seeing the shootin' iron bits?

Love that pattern paper! Waste not want not.

That barrel is not the one, but it is the same size this is the rifle. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...76ee2ba18c.jpg

Much progress on the forearm yesterday and today, after a weekend match that scored 27. Rifle did its part, but the driver had much trouble with the easiest animal;pigs. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...9efd65c0ba.jpg

AAA Grade... I don't think so. Not junk but closer to junk than AAA.

Looks like nice quarter sawn walnut with some very nice curl figure, perfect for a slender straight grip stock. Should really shimmer once you have a finish on it, yet have strength in the grip.
Perfect choice in my opinion.
