How it's done - Creating a custom gunstock
The process of taking a block of wood and turning it into a finished gun stock is not a task for those without patience and a deep set of skills. It often take in excess of a hundred hours using chisels, files, and other implements of the trade to create a hand crafted piece of art.
You would expect nothing less if you've ever held a gun produced by Hodgins Gunstocks. The finished firearm is something that will be cherished and admired as it's passed from generation to generation.
The tour below shows the various steps of creating the stock for a W.J. Jeffery double-rifle.
