I took a little break from swords recently and payed back a favor I’d owed a buddy. I had told him I would “decorate” his .22 cal. Semi-automatic ground hog chaser. He is enamored with Buffalo so I gave the gun a Native American theme with Buffalo, a Lance and a basket-weave grip both sides. Before layout even began I SANDED and SANDED and SANDED that stock till every bit of original stain/colorant was gone, it was blonde and very smooth. The carving is bas-relief in every instance. We might transform a buffalo skull we have into a rack for the rifle. If it evolves I’ll share it with you all!

It’s like going to a museum -I don’t know art but I know what I like. I don’t know how to carve but I like this. The buffalo and spear are nicely done. But that basket weave, now that really gets me. Well done.

Very nice work!

You should contact Henry Arms in NJ. Maybe can do custom work for them.

Henry uses American Walnut; fantastic medium to work from.

Don’t put it on a rack. Lock it up in a metal cabinet or sage.

Just tell your buddy not to shoot a buffalo with it, would really piss him off. LOL Nice work.
