A Treasury of Classic Carving Patterns to beautify any gun.
A hand-carved gunstock adds both beauty and value to a firearm. Create your own one-of-a-kind functional artwork that will be cherished for years to come with this treasury of classic gunstock carving patterns.
You're sure to find the best carving pattern here for your next project. From basic checkering to dramatic relief carved scenes, nationally recognized carving artist Lora S. Irish presents 135 great gunstock patterns featuring traditional sportsman and hunting- related themes. She offers an array of excellent choices for every skill level, from beginner to expert, so you can start with a basic pattern and tackle more intricate designs as your experience in gunstock carving grows.
The patterns in this book are designed for rifle stocks, but small changes will make them just as applicable to knife handles, pistol grips, or duck calls. And while these patterns are specifically designed to be relief carved with hand tools, they are equally usable with power carving tools, woodburners, laser engravers, and sand blasters.
