Well, it’s been some time since I posted anything. Sorry for my absence. Somehow everything else just seems to get in the way.
A few months back, Lynn Doughty carved a character that was carrying a flintlock pistol and did a marvelous set of videos on how to carve the gun itself.
I thought that I’d like to try that myself only make it full size, in keeping with my Springfield Trapdoor Rifle and Remington Cap and Ball Revolver. With the exception of a few modern, oval-headed wood-screws, the gun is completely fashioned from Basswood.
Here are a few other views of the completed piece:
