« Part 1: The beginning Part 2 of Adventures in Carving a Tompson Sub Machine Gun Stock series no next part

This adventure in carving has been very enjoyable.
The scroll pattern seemed to be a bit more advanced than I had anticipated. Although I am never one to run from a challenge. I kind of get a grin and ….well as my mom always said “you can see the wheels turning in that boys head.” So I grabbed a very small home made gouge and the chips were flying….sort of.

This wood is so very dry for carving

After about 12 hours I ended up with this. I am attempting to simulate bullet holes/dents in metal. The carving on the other side will explain why I went with this design.

This has been a very enjoyable project.

I will finish sand and detail the scroll work next to flow with the stock.
Thanks for viewing.

Your scroll work is great. I wish you would’ve shown it more close up!
