    I had some spare 1/4" red oak after completing mrs. dolos bday gift so I took 4 pieces and made a glue up. later when testing a failed moorehammer experiment, I thought about a moorehammer grip on a pfs. its only sanded to 600 and my new jug of pure linseed oil isn't here yet so its kinda naked.

    Great work! I love red oak! It is such a versatile wood and if you spend time with it, it can be cut and shaped to reveal amazing grain patterns.
    This came out excellent

    Thanks will, sometimes we have strange luck. I have to give my brother a lil credit, I was making a moorehammer with "wings"(failed experiment). I was going to cut it up to make this basic design when he said, "plex is ugly, what about the red oak glue up?" and Robert is your fathers brother.

    This has a stout, impervious look to it. I think it will laugh at being knocked about.

    Beautiful work.

    Very nicely done! Good proportions with clean cuts. I think that chunky hand filling shooters are among the best. Good Work.

    nice PFS ! great shape and very well finished, congrats and ENJOY it LOL !
    I believe it's a PFS on it's own if it has 20mm (or less) fork gap, 60mm (or less) fork width and a little throat to attach rubber, out this dimensions maybe "transitional's" between a full fork ...
    Cheers

    Thanks for the good words. By the numbers it just fits as a true pfs, its 20mm by 50mm or so.

    Arturo, watching a couple of your shooting vids made me interested in pfs. hope I can do it justice as you would.
