no previous part Part 1 of Gun Stock Carving # 3 series Part 2: The finish »

My father-n-law sent me his BB gun stock for practice. Although the wood in these stocks are very soft it had its challenges nevertheless.
After scribing the design on the stock I began to carve inside the banner area to relieve it so the banner looks correct and raised.
After that i began on the banner itself, relieving the outter edge and making the folds more apparent
Then I started stippling the area that was relieved inside the banner. Photobucket
Finally it was time to start on the gator and releave the area around the eye and remove the factory finish from the head.
It took about 5 hours for a beginner like myself to get this far but it really is satisfying to see it taking shape.
Tomorrow I hope to finish it up so it can go back home.
Thank you for viewing
