Here's my current one.  It's a .36 Ohio rifle built from a Homer Dangler kit. It was my first attempt at building a longrifle.  It's now my son's favorite squirrel gun.  I'm building myself a .32 SMR to replace it.

Yours will be up soon , Kermit. This one put me behind a bit, this is the second try. The first one I was done with and while it was setting outside to speed the finish drying the forestock developed several cracks, so I scraped it and made a new stock. Wade, I may be slow , but I'm not 3 years slow. :)

A big, 2hp Griz dust collector I keep in an adjacent room because it sounds like a B-52 taking off when it is running.

Taylor needs to get busy on his walnut .25!!! In my humble opinion, of course.
