This has been an on going project, I thought I would never finish it.
I started out using knives and gouges after drawing the design on by hand. I decided I wanted the theme to be of Bonnie and Clyde since the gun stock fit the era.
So I thought the car would be most fitting for the theme, on the other side I did my best to depict a piece of diamond plate steel that was shot.
Then I was introduced to the Shofu detail carver/dentist tool. I cleaned it up a bit with the Shofu and finished the car. This was a adventure in gunstock carving thats for sure.
Maybe the next stock will be much easier…lol, we shall see.
Thanks for looking
I cutout and fashoined some brass plates for a name plate,insert and a butt plate, then I engraved them. One to show what the stock belongs to and the other to place a name on it. I went with Ambushed because thats what the Police did to them to stop the madness.
I entered this into the local carving show and was suprised and happy to get a first place on it.
Thanks again for the view.
