    What exactly did all you pervs (male and female) expect to see here? After all, this is a shooting related forum, not.....................

    Received a package from my friend Gary Bulley a few days ago and just have to brag about his work. About a month ago, I gave Gary the only stick of "Window Pane Myrtlewood" that I had, too small for a gunstock, and asked him to make the cradle for my new Bulley Bore Micrometer out of it. I knew it would be awesome, but I had no idea just how beautiful awesome would be. I've had the thing for days and have not yet taken the mic out of the box. Showed it yesterday to the miller who had this piece of wood in his shop two years ago and he remembered the stick. That's how rare this variant of Myrtlewood is. Pretty wood plus outstanding craftsmanship yields a real keepsake.

    You all know the old saying "Life is too short to have an ugly Bulley Bore Micrometer Box". Just wanted to share.

    The last two pictures show how the "Windows" change completely as the viewing angle changes. The wood looks alive.

    A great way to use a gorgeous piece of wood. It will make using your Bore Micrometer much more fun.

    It`s the best looking piece of Myrtle I`ve seen, too bad it wasn`t big enough for a stock. Larry

    Looks like a nice tight fit too! Keeps the tool from flopping around.

    All of us can look at a tree and see shade, fruit or even a rake but there are some people that can also see works of art. Thank god for those people.

    The caskets that Unloader is referring to. I donate these to Sunnyvale R&GC for their end of May Doubles Marathon. A lot of tongue in cheek between pairs and pears and they seem to be appreciated by the shooters.
