  • 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!!

                      SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                      Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                      Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
