    The photos below will not do this product any justice. It is a Sporting Clay gun and the wood is Turkish Walnut provided by the customer. I hope that the customer will be happy with his new wood. Cindy did an outstanding job on the checkering and The Crew did a great job on metal fit also providing the high gloss finish to bring out the grain and rich tones in the wood. As always thank you for taking a look because without all the shooters coming here we would not be able to produce these works of art. Thank you again for all your support.

    Dennis, Cindy & The Crew

    That is another example of your crew's great work. Cindy's checkering just keeps getting better and better.

    Dennis, would you mind telling what kind of finish you use? Am looking for a hi-build finish that is easy to apply and repair like Permalyn of Tru-oil but doesn't require a zillion coats.

    I carved on like this out of balsa wood one winter

    Used some magic marker to create black lines

    poured on some lin seed oil and let it drip off

    I dont think you could tell the difference

    Regards from Iowa

    To answer two questions the the first being time. This stock took a total of 7 weeks from the date we received the pattern stock back from the customer. The second question is the finish that we use. It is a DuPont Hyper clear that is a two part catalyzed finish that can high build in short order. This stock has 12 to 14 coats of finish but the down side is the finish. It is very expensive to purchase and you will need professional equipment to spray and bake when the finish is applied. Good luck with your finish work and let us see the project when it is done. Thank you for the questions.
