Here is another student project. This project is built of solid cherry with the exception of the back panels. Unable to get into a woods class due to scheduling this student took it upon himself to come in an hour early every morning to complete this project. He used a plan but made numerous modifications to fit his needs. A local sawmill gave him a great deal on some “rustic” cherry which made the project a lot more work but was well worth it in the end as it was possible to showcase some of the more unique grain. The construction is all pretty traditional with the exception of the stock and barrel rests that where cut using CNC. It’s a great example of what can be accomplished with personal motivation and a bit of buck fever might have helped too. It’s really helped to motivate the intro students as they see him progress.
