  • 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!!

                      Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

                      Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick.

                      Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
                      Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
