Happy Birthday, Doan!

Clare here.

When I’m in town or not (over the phone), I try to help out posting on this blog (you can blame the spelling errors and broken links on me) for Doan.. who I affectionally call Dad, Pops and a long list of other names.

Well, today he is celebrating his 56th 21st Birthday.

Happy Birthday, Dood!

Continuing work on a F-Open Claro Walnut Stock for Golden Bear Stolle Panda Action

I am now in the continuing stages of work on this stock. Since, 3 inch wood in rare to come by, I have added “runners” on the sides of the fore-end. The owner of this rifle has request a longer “wheelbase”, so I added an extension to meet his needs. The “runners” will also added strength and stability to the extension.

I’ve also added some splines for added strength, so I could add some cooling vents.

There are two pictures of the trigger guard. I resurfaced then to meet the pillar correctly.

Remington 40x Claro Walnut Prone Stock for Smallbore

This piece of Claro Walnut has different grain because it’s quarter sawn. It’s usually don’t see much quarter sawn wood. It takes a lot of raw material. (Manufactures like Stickley were very well known to use this kind of cut.)  But, when you do it’s exquisite.

Breathing New Life into Old Wood

Over the last 25 years, three moves and three states….. I have a lot of leftover pieces.

The other day, I was sorting through all the pieces and thought… why don’t I make laminate stocks.  I laminated a mixture of Red Heart, English Walnut, Koa and other laminates.

There is 1 Prone stock and 3 that are blanks that could be prone stocks, FTR or F-Open.

If you are interest in one of these stocks. Call me. 714-457-5566.

Anschutz Cheek Adjuster

On the older Anschutz thumbhole stocks, they do not come with a cheek adjuster. The below adaptation solves the problem of not having an adjustable cheekpiece. This cheekpiece is adjustable for front & rear tilt, cast on & cast off, and cheek height. It can also be adapted to the thumbhole stocks that have the cheek riser, but are difficult to use.

Sometimes you have to do something different…..

I usually work almost seven days a week. Sometimes, I need to do something different. My daughters,  both have cutting boards… I wanted to make Sue’s something different. So, I made her a matching set. Cheese board and cutting board.

Nicely Figured Walnut for Barnard Action

This stock has beautiful figures… especially the sunburst near the back of the stock.

As usually, I didn’t take as many in-process photos because I got busy working on it.
