I posted some pics of these in progress in earlier posts. This is a stock and forend I made for my dad. He put together a shotgun from spare parts he had and asked me to make the stock for it. Wood is walnut. Finish is watco natural danish oil. He is going to add a recoil pad also. I hope to get the opportunity to make more of these and get a little better each time. Lots of fun and a good learning experience. I would like to get some checkering tools and try my hand at that in the future

Nicely done. I’m sure your Dad will enjoy using this knowing it was a family effort. I did some checkering on a few hand gun grips I made last year. Quite relaxing I think.

Nice work—you’ve done a fine job on a project that’s a lot harder than it looks. Good luck with checkering—it’s just time consuming and requires great control.

Thanks a lot. Its rewarding to hear the nice comments. I have a lot of respect for all the kind talented folks here on lumberjocks. Surely one of the best sites ive found on the internet. Makes ya proud to be a wood worker.
