Sneaky....
I go on the theory "clean and nice" is not an absolute, It just has to be the best that you can do at the time. We would have to work long and hard to get the results that J5 , Island, and about ten others on this forum do.
Ya don't shoot pretty, it's just sweet when you can shoot a custom!
Bye the way Guys, my emoticons no longer work????

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.

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 facelift :)
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.

Wouldn't feel good about giving it to a new shooter. If there is a vet on the forum that is a "dyed in the wool" gapper or PFS that wants to try and tame it, PM me, I will send it to you. No charge , just a token of thanks for your service.
