  • 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.

                          Hi Jim.

                          The paints I used are mainly aerosol spray.

                          The green is Rus-oleum Painters touch, craft enamel.

                          The red is a stores brand own name, just called Wilko's

                          Don't know if you will get either of these in Mexico, but I'm

                          sure you...

                          Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

                          I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.

                          Nice precise work Alex, as always from you.

                          I also find Celtic these designs fascinating due to their intricacy and geometrical symmetry but I doubt I have your patience to cut them!

                          Well done!

                          Bstark, take a look at out simple table setup that I have posted in Bettys posting. This fair is an annual fund raiser for our churches women's group. So I pay for two 8 ft tables (so I don't need to bring any) A couple of nice table clothes and I put shutters on each end and made special shelves...

                          RJ actually that room was an add on to our sanctuary it was meant to be a Gym and the shutters where to protect the windows. I has never seen a basketball since it was built in 2001. Our pre school uses it and we use it for many events plus we rent it out for private use....
