asmith - beautiful job on the full stock as well!
I'm curious as to what you are using to bring out the grain on the maple? I've used "aquas forte" with good luck but have never tried any of the newer "stains" such as Track of the Wolf offers, etc. Can you tell us what you did as far as the stain/finish? Many thanks!
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
