  • Winchester Rifle with a Change

    I decided at the last minute to make one of Steve Good's Winchester rifles for my Dad for Christmas. I did mine a little different. I gave it a little intarsia style. I cut the trigger area from blue pine and fit it to the rifle.

    I used 3 different kinds of wood for this. Peruvian walnut, walnut and blue pine. The holder was made from curly maple.

    I wish I could have made the barrel from blue pine, but since I don't turn I used a dowel and painted it. I think he liked it!!

                      Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

                      on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...

                      I think it would be wonderful if the publishers would consider some of the comments and see if they might make some modifications....
