I just finished 6 more Thompson SMG’s. They are made from Pine, Oak and Maple. I added a tag with a serial number they are numbered 1 of 6 to 6 of 6 The bolt is oak, and slids on a track milled into the reciever. The Screw heads are button plugs with a slot cut into them to replicate a screw head. I went with a black gloss paint for the finish on the reciever and barrel. The stoct was stained with walnut. I used a rotisery motor and made a plug for the barrel with a square end that fit into the rotisery motor and a block with a nail to act as a tail stock, I then spun each reciever and barrel assembly using the rotisery motor and sprayed the finish, by keeping the reciever/barrel assembly rotating there were no paint runs. I will use that technique again on future projects.
Thanks for looking. Now I am trying to price them, anyone have any ideas what I could sell them for.
