    Default wood carving 2nd gun

    Hi Gents,
    wood carving has become a new hobby for me. i wanted to share my latest project. i need to clean the barrel and put it back on yet.
    the rifle is a .50 cal. Hawken black powder rifle, a good shooter. so on the stock i put a Hawk's head with an eye i got from a taxidermist. the eye follows you, its almost creepy. i am just learning to carve wood so i am trying different things to see how it turns out. some things turn out better in my head than in wood lol. i beat some brass into submition to fit the forearm curve, not the best fit. it is flush and smooth, but my cuts are a little wide in spots. i might back fill with stained sawdust i have.
    on the back side of the rifle i carved crossed feathers and just a decorative design. i can add to the carvings any time .

    Hi Andrew,
    You are on the right track my friend, i can see you making a living out of this one day the hawk is awsum and that eye is a bit spooky to. But i think you hit the nail on the head with that one, i look forward to your next project
    and to see this rifle finished.

    As said - another great piece of carving, Andrew. I really like your idea
    of using a taxidermist's eye set into the stock.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.
