This is a company logo printed on just about everything the crew wears. The client wanted it painted, so that added some special challenges. Just for the record that is a caricature of a concrete pump truck operator. It is coated with three top coats of polyurethane to add as much durability as possible. Used only hand tools.

You did a really good job on this but why anyone would want to do that to a gun stock is beyond me.

Thank you jaykaypur. It was only a cheap .22, nothing special. I’m hoping to gather some other gun stock carving and checkering out of the deal.

That is awesome. You did a great job. It “was” a cheap .22. Now its a customized .22 with a one of a kind stock. I could imagine the gun will be on display somewhere?

Dan, that’s a fine job on that. It’s not exactly something like I would want on my rifle but a fine job nevertheless.

I’m not even going to put it on my pea shooter. And it’s not likely to end up in a museum, but it’s what the client wanted and he’s paying, so ” ”! What can I say? He’s seen it and is pretty excited about it, so that counts. If that excitement is contagious, I could get several (hopefully more traditional) jobs out of it.

So, what would you want on your gun stock?

Whatever the customer wants, and so long as he/she’s happy!
I got this great pair of walnut pieces for a stock, but now I have to find a decent rifle to replace the stock.
But then what would I do with it. Garden crows I suppose.
