  • Steve Good's Winchester 1873

    When I received this pattern from Steve Good I knew I had to cut it next.
    The pattern called for using 3 1/4" pieces for the stock but after cutting the center one I thought it would be too thick. I used 1/8" for the outside pieces and it came out ok.
    The light colored plate where the bullets are put in was to be 1/8" but I cut them from the 1/8" and used the belt sander to grind off two layers of the three ply.

    Steve makes some really great patterns and this is going to be my fav for a while.

    I painted on black stamp pad ink for the metal parts, the stock is black walnut stain and the plate is from the watco exterior oil that I soaked it in.

    I stack cut these so there will be more coming soon.

      Nice job Stephan. I was thinking about doing that one too. I'm just busy working on several others right now. You did really well on the colors. It really looks sharp. A great pattern of Steve's too.

        Nice job on the Winchester. I also tried a version of this this past week and posted it yesterday, but seems to have gotten lost. I like the black ink on the barrels. Gives it a realistic look.

                  What is the length? Have you expanded it from the pattern on Steve's site?

                      G'day Steve and Al,
                      Excellent rifles fellas.
                      I'd love to cut one and just may if I can convince the War Office that it is not just a dust collector.
                      Regards

                          The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

                          I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

                          IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....
