Thanks Steve!  I have plans for a soft touch black with silver veining and another with red veining.  I had not considered doing multiple colors of veining, but that is a good idea!  The CNC has been idle while I have been getting this group finished up, but will have it milling some more soon.

Here it is the latest Airforce Texan custom stock in Flat Dark Earth with the black veining. 

I need to add some more lighting in the shop for photography work and press my white sheet...lol

Two more Airforce Texan stocks off he bench.  I am calling this color Black Forest Camo.  The "yellow" on the forearm is from light reflections.








This Airforce Texan stock is in October Camo color

I am long since out of extraordinary, exotic, fantastic, wonderful, magnificent, and outstanding adjectives!

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

Thanks Steve!  I'm having fun!

Some Cutter Cam videos.  Three short clips of cutting base plates for recoil pads I mold for the Texans

The first Airforce Condor Stock to come of the CNC.  I like this blue veining on the black.

An Airforce Condor stock in Black Pepper laminated birch wood with a couple of coats of oil applied.  There is still a lot of coats to go before it builds that deep satin sheen I like on a stock.



I finished cutting this one today.  I can't wait to see the colors on it deepen and gloss up once finish is applied.
