Me too! Got two almost done. Just gotta band 'em up and a little touch on the finish.
Thanks Mike..Not happy with the way it shoots tho. Fits the hand nicely, wants to lean forward like a PF. But for me it shoots everywhere but where I'm looking.Whoa! I barely recognize that little gapper! That's amazing work on the shaping and finishing on both of those frames. Glad the little gapper got some love and a facelift1208191004.jpg1208191005.jpg1208191006.jpg1208191007.jpg
I promised I'd try to add some photos, so here goes nothing.
The bark on is what we call "river birch". Grow along the stream beds in the northwest of USA.
The small one is half oak that Mikey gave me and half oak from an old truck bed.
I fracked the laminated oak after shaping into a design that I stole from all these other guys on the forum.
Then gave them both three coatd of marine spar varnish. Mostly because that is what I had.
The fracking reminds me of treeman's logo. I was going to gift it to a vet, but I'm not sure that a newbie could shoot it without getting hurt. Maybe I'll try to get another natural made for that.
