The art of gunstock carving originated in Europe where the sport of hunting was taken very seriously. Elite sportsmen used beautiful guns with lavish engraving to show respect for the animals they hunted. Today, gunstock carving is still taken seriously as an example of custom craftsmanship and pride of ownership of fine firearms. This book includes three full color step by step carving demonstrations, a full color gallery of guns, patterns and a complete overview of tools and materials. 90 pages, paperback.
