Yes, I did do a picture series during the build. As hard as I thought the inletting would be, getting the jigs exactly right and to Oli's specs was the hardest part. If your jigs are true and square then the inletting is a snap. I built my top and bottom jig out of MDF cut on a jigsaw.

As long as you use Oli's exact measurements you cant go wrong. I couldn't get a printer to print his drawings out to the correct dimensions, so I had to draw them all myself. With the centerline on the jig and the centerline that you mark around stock lined up perfectly, the inletting will be square. Me, being a measure once and cut four times kinda guy, had to make several jigs before I could get one true and square. I didn't do a build post since 90% of my build is exactly like Oli's post, but I can post the ones that I think made it a hair easier than Oli's. For example, I know nada about chisels and such, but I know how to run a sander with heavy grit paper, and thats what I used to shape mystock.

Thanks for all the kind words. Now that I have a little faith, I will be attempting the inletting on my 77/17. I hope the next one turns out as well.
I love it. Very unique.

very cool, I bet you could get that on the cover of a magazine or the Ruger website.
Certainly not something you will see everyday. Nice work.
Very cool. Got me thinking about art stocks.
Dang, I can't believe I missed this the first time around. This is the first stock in a long time I am really impressed with.
