My grandson’s plastic store bought gun broke and he wanted to know if I could make him a wooden one. I said we could do it together and give it a try.

He did the tracing. I did the cutting. He did the sanding. We both did the polyurethane.

These were made from scrap fir, sanded and finished with poly.

Thanks for lookin’................

Yes. You have a good eye. I didn’t post the wooden bayonet we made. Too many liberals…..........
