A buddy had this rifle passed to him that someone along the way had sawed the forward end of the stock off of. He asked if I could make him a new one. Had a thick piece of cherry and there you go. Wish I would have taken a few more pics along the way. Cutting the tapered cylindrical relief for the barrel took some tinkering in the attic.

Looks like a very nice job.

Nice- stockmaking is an art and takes a lot of patience to fit the action and barrel to the wood. WTG!

@Soapmaker. Is there a book or something that shows how to make a gun stock. I have an old rifle (.20 guage, single shot) that needs a new stock in a bad way.
Thanks

thelt- “Gun Owner’s Book of Care, Repair and Improvement by Roy Dunlap” is one that I have seen others recommend for this. But I am unsure of its detail as I haven’t seen it myself.

Thank you all for the compliments
