    Hey, Y'All... This was a quick build as is with natties like this... didn't need to use the rasp much. Filled the cracks with fine gold glitter and CA... although I'm going to stick to mixing wood glue next time with the glitter as working with CA was messy... going along with the theme of...

    I refinished an older build with TruOil and I'm digging the results. The bands are 1.25x8inch black Simpleshot, great for 5-15g ammo. It came off an old limb and I was skeptical but the core looked solid and this proved true after ripping through layers of crumbly wood and ancient worm...

    Hey y'all. I wanted to make another pinch-grip type of shooter because my only other one was my conus build (EGV). Plus, I haven't made any since last year so my craving to build was high. Madrona tree forks are the only deadwood fork I want to work on now. I've made about 10 so far and the...

I'm not sure if I would do...

    Earlier today I wasn't even planning on starting this one let alone posting to the forum... it took under 3 hours this evening to get it to this stage from saw and rasp to 220grit and rubbed in mineral oil... the reason was the deadwood was very crumbly in a lot of spots and powdery too yet it...
  7. Off Topic
    I'm a HUGE fan of Game Of Thrones (HBO TV, I don't read 1000+ page novels :D) and one of my favorite characters is Hodor... anyway, that is the inspiration for the name but it wouldn't have happened without finding an upright dead madrona tree sapling that was old old old... it was even more...
