Create one-of-a-kind functional works of art that will be cherished for years to come with this treasury of classic gunstock carving patterns. From basic checkering to dramatic relief carved scenes, nationally recognized carving artist Lora S. Irish presents 135 great gunstock patterns featuring traditional sportsman and hunting-related themes. With all skill levels represented you can start with a basic pattern and tackle more intricate designs as your experience in gunstock carving grows. The patterns in this book are designed for rifle stocks, but are just as applicable for knife handles, pistol grips, or duck calls. And while these patterns are specifically designed to be relief carved with hand tools, they are equally usable with power-carving tools, woodburners, laser engravers, and sandblasters.
