I would advise saving a quality blank until you've have a go with a less pressures lump of timber. Unless your brave or well experienced.

Good advice. I’ve done a couple - needless to say the first one ended up as kindling but the second wasn’t too bad. Let’s hope fortune favours the brave....

Obviously a very talented guy.

It was interesting see the stock copying machine in action and some of his other bits of kit designed to make life easier

What really suprised me was his approch to checkering without supporting the stock in a cradle attached to work horse.

I noticed that too along with having the barreled action clamped in the vice so he could file the stock. I would have been too concerned about catching the file on the metalwork accidentally.
