    Pictured below is a beautiful Browning Sporting Gun for a lady shooter. I wanted to display this one to show what I think is stunning work on the checkering. The customer ask Cindy if she could substitute roses in place of Fleur D'lis. I think that she did an outstanding job. The wood is a Fiddleback Claro that came from California. The gun features our Delrin Add-On rib that keeps the shooters head upright for better visability. As always thank you for taking a look and I hope the owner likes what she sees.

    Dennis, It's beautiful! I want one!! Great work! I will have to show hubby since I want a new gun for my birthday. Can you do other flowers as well ( such as tulips or sunflowers)?

    Hi Sue,

    You will have to ask Cindy when the time comes but I am sure that she can make that happen. This one is going to cost me as it took a lot of time to do this work. Thank you for the compliments I will pass them on.

    Wow. Just the checkering alone with three panels a side, and wrap-around checkering on the forend. Then add the custom design of the roses. Then add the price that Cindy deserves from the quality work. Yikes!

    As usual, absolutely beautiful work. I really like the checkered cheeks.

    Very nice work to all involved. Jon

    This may not be fair but I cannot say enough about my wife. The design is actually a carving and Cindy has never had training for carving but she just looked at the request and said no problem. She is very talanted and I could not be more proud of her work and what she has done since she started doing this checkering 6 years ago. A big thank you to my lovely bride and for all that she does, I am a very lucky man.
