Well, if you remember back about 2 months ago I asked what wood stayed red over time, ( see here ) this the project I was talking about. The Ruger logo is red so that is what I wanted to use.
I have been wanting to make a project out of holly for over a year now and I have been thinking about this one for a couple of months now. It’s made entirely out of holly and ebony with bloodwood for the logos.
It surprised me just how long it took to make. I figured “I’ll just knock if out in a couple of days”. Well that couple of days took me about 2 weeks. Mainly because I could only work on it when my daughter took her nap and a few hours in the evening. About half the time was spent meticulously working on the ebony trim around the openings.
It’s finally done, so I can move on to my next project.
