  • 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

                          Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                          Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                          Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
