    I have built a few muzzle loading firearms, and wood to metal fit is critical. Looks to me like you would be very good at it.

ID:	1016694This is one I built, showing the wood to metal fit I got on the lock. It's not exactly professional, but I think I did a
    pretty good job. The lock is the easiest to inlet, I'm not showing some fits that had to go over or under a bend. This stock is local walnut,
    and I found out I'm allergic to walnut, so sneezed and scratched my eyes through the entire operation. The gun turned out to be worth it
    though. It's a .62 caliber knock off of an English sporting rifle from the early 1800's. It's put deer meat on the table, and won me some
    shooting matches over the years.
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    Fantastic looking work WorldTalker. Wished I had the patience to do that. I done a few pieces many years ago. Nothing that could compare to your Art. And, Art is the correct word.
    You are a fantastic Artist.

    Beautiful work. You have a talent. I carve wood but none of my carvings look as professional as your work.

    Freedom is something that dies unless it's used.


    Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of your life.

    A student said to his master, "You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?"
    The master replied, "It is better to be a warrior in a garden, than to be a gardener in a war."

    To bad you had to give up your shop.... Nice looking pieces. It's a good combination to be half artist / half woodworker. I have the large home that includes my woodshop up for sale now. It's only about 250 yards from me. When it sells I'll have to get busy INSTANTLY and build a new building nearer my home's property. I dread moving all the equipment and reorganizing a new shop. Attached below are some toy boxes that I've been producing and selling. I make each toy box entirely out of 5 - 2" x 4" x 8' construction grade studs (except 1/4" plywood bottom). I got the process down pretty good. It's actually easier to make 10 at once then just 1 when the jigs & stops are set up. The paint, stain and lettering for each one is endless. The ones shown have oak plywood tops (option). I made the poker frames awhile back and the log cabin style bird houses and feeders also. I never use plans or stencils or copy someone else's work... just look at a pile of lumber and start thinkin'.

    You need to get your shop back buddy and get to thinking!!!!!!! And I should have been taking photos of the ALL the stuff I built in the past also. You do some great work buddy.

    Well, I got to tell you, I like them all. I have done a lot of art work and at one time did the same type. I have one hanging in my bathroom( the tub lady ) I would post it , but I am afraid it would bring down the thread.

    Right now, I'm working on a Koa ukulele for a young man's Daughter and I will send you a pic when it's done! The Curly Maple headstock shot is a neck for a Cigar Box Guitar! I've already made a matching amp using a consecutive numbered box.
    Yes, I have a butt load of tools and I do have a Grizzly Planer/Joiner to flatten out (square necks)! Grizzly makes very good tools for the money and the owner is a guitar maker!
    All the Best!

    There's NO DOUBT that there are SO MANY folks here on Tnet that have so much talent in JUST this arena. In fact if we all knew and/or EVERYBODY shared projects it would be amazing what each and every one of us have come up with and done. All you folks are amazing.... I can't hold a hat to ya all.

    Wouldn't it be a BLAST for us "all" to meet together... tip a beer... and share projects and knowledge.... It doesn't get no better! No winners / losers just feeding off of each other. It would be FUN!!!!!
