Hi good hearing from you guys. I will post a picture soon. I have not put a finish
on the stock yet and am in fact practicing carving on scrap materials with the hope of becoming proficient enough to carve something into the stock. My old eyes and shaky hands may make me think better of this idea as I practice more. Maybe I better post a picture before I ruin the stock with a finish and an attempt at carving on it. I stayed up past midnight just reading all the interesting posts / threads. I am already addicted.
