    Very nice Doc.  You are probably creating your own legacy.  My Dad has a stock that his granddad made back in the 1920’s and it will be passed down for many more generations to come.  Enjoy.  I hope your legacy lives on for many more generations.

    Thanks FunGun, I hope you are right. I have an old single shot 12 gauge that my great grandfather made a stock for. The stock for the Weatherby has a left-hand cheek-weld. Although my son is right handed, he is left- eye dominate and shoots left handed. Currently he enjoys shooting a shoot gun more but I hope to change that in the future.
    My brother and I both have the same 50 cal blackpowder rifle. He has 3 (brother-in-law, and nephew) elk tags near Flagstaff this fall and we hope to use them there. I’ll just be there for morale. Still need to bed and finish them but I think they turned out nice. I plan to post some pics once I upload them.

    “NMshooter”It is not as accurate as the Dakota Duplicator but is 1/2 cost. I have made a total of 5 stocks. Currently working on 2 50 cal black powder rifles.  I really have been enjoying this hobby. Been working on stocks more than shooting. LOL Rec. to bed all the powder rifles. 
    Thanks,

    Doc

    
I would like to see pictures of those as well. Very interesting to me.

    Dirte,
    This is as far as I have gotten. Still need to bed and finish them. Even though I use a duplicator, as you can see they come out pretty rough it is a lot of work to finish. Takes quite a bit to set up as well. As you can see on the first stock the pattern is on the bottom of the butt stock, however, it really looks different and kinda cool. It will be just a hunting stock and just for my brother, LOL. Actually, I plan on giving him my rifle, so he gets them both. Just having fun tooling around. Really please with the pattern on the second butt stock.

    Actually there was a lot of crossover. When the instructor was talking, I had to smile a lot as many of the concepts were the same just on a larger scale.
