How many hours in it so far?

I love that basket stamp pattern! Pretty unusual on a stock.

Well done! That should make a good grip and look good, too.

Are you using knives and chisels or dremels, or what?

Very nice—interesting alternative to checkering, and I like the basket weave motif.

Great work, especially for a first. I too like the basket weave pattern a lot.

For a first you’ve certainly done a fine job on it. It looks very nice.
