    Home made rifle stock, made from good old native Rimu. check this vid out

    I made this rifle stock from a chunk of native Rimu that had been lying under the house.

    And a "chain saw" was used in the making of it!.

    wow.

    Seriously, WOW

    The artwork is ultra impressive. Especially the roaring stag. Is wood work or artwork your hobby or profession?

    I'm a builder by trade does that count?.
    Pyrography (wood burning) art work on a rifle stock, pretty happy with this end result, and you cant rub it out if you do a mistake and start over ...lol.
    I like to make all sorts of stuff, this was just a wee project that went well.

    Great craftsmanship KC. If you are getting quarter inch groups at 100 yards but are still working on a load then what sort of accuracy are you after?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
