  • SKS gunstock

    Here are a couple pictures of a gunstock I designed and cut out of 2" hard maple with my old Dremel scrollsaw. I've had people tell me that they needed to get a bandsaw because they were cutting 1" wood and that a scrollsaw wouldn't cut it. Then I show them this gunstock and tell them it was cut with my dremel. It usually changes their mind..lol. My 21" PS Wood Machine scrollsaw and 21" Dewalt scrollsaw both have lots more capacity and power, but I still use the 16" Dremel and 16" Delta saws, because for some things they have some better features for the job at hand. Thought you might like to see som "heavy scrolling".

      Cool!

      Since it includes a pierced cut, this technically qualifies as fretwork.

          Thanks.....
          These are a challenge to make, but very rewarding too.
          It took outside scrolling, internal cuts and and a lot of drilling, and routing for the inletting of the barrel, reciever,and magazine. I also made use of a dremel and carving knives, and did most of the outside carving with a rotary rasp in a drill. With reference to another post as to, if laser cut could be called handmade. Since I did use a power drill, dremel, electric router, electric sander, and electric scrollsaw would this be considered handmade? I would think so since my hand guided each tool to make each cut, groove and hole. I also used hand carving knives and gouges and hand sanded for finish sanding, as well as all the power tools. Thanks for looking, and I always like your responses for good and ill, they help me to know what I do right , and what I can do to make things better.

              WOW, Tinker, that is one nice piece of work. Stop & think a minute, could just anyone do that? No Way. It is hand made in my book. Beautiful wood & nice detail, I'm sure. You know how to use those tools, for sure. Nice Thanks for letting us look.

                      Thanks for the feedback. You are right about it being better when you make it, because it becomes an extension of you, what you like, and what fits you best. Besides just the satisfaction that you designed something, then made it, and it came out like you wanted it to is nice. That pertains to anything we make no matter what it is.

                        It's not really all that hard to do. This was my 1st thumb hole pistol grip stock. To me it wasn't so much a matter of skill, but more a matter of carefully laying out your cut lines and going slow and careful. Especially in cutting the inletting. I was told once that you look at the piece of wood and just remove everything that doesn't belong.
                        If you would like I could scan my stock pattern in sections and email it to you with the dimensions so you could print it out then tape it together and have a pattern to make your own stock with.

                          Anyone in the western states know where I can get some 2" thick hardwood to make some more of these gun stocks. It's really hard to find any good thick hardwood here in southern Idaho. Thanks.

                            Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                            We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                            He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                            What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
