This is a stock I made for a co-worker out of a figured piece of walnut. First stock I ever made and the first time I tried silver inlay. Took a little figuring but I think it came out ok. He’s happy and that’s what counts I guess, lol.

That is just a wonderful job, great work on the inlay.
What size of wood did you use?

I used a piece of 8/4 walnut and picked up some silver ribbon for the inlay from a local jewelry store. Thanks for all the good comments!

You’ve done very well in your “cave”, must be well lit! Just yesterday I was looking at stock blanks that are merely just a slab of wood with some being as much as $3,000. I guess we’re in the wrong end of the business, aye? Keep up the beautiful work.

OMG it’s glorious. I can’t even look at the old stock in the photo. He’ll need a solid stock behind that big boy.

I thought it probably was TC, but wasn’t 100% sure. They made good muzzle loaders for a long time ;-)

You did a super nice job on that stock and that rifle looks great because of it.
