    Default New Catdet 25/20 project wood

    I had just enough wood in this flick to make two stocks and a forend. it was the last of a very large tree given to me by Hurricane Hugo. The photos do not even come close to doing this piece of lumber justice. I hope to get this project sanded and sealed ASAP. I'll post as I go along.
    It's a good thing that I don't have to rely on my picture taking abilities to buy my whisky. I'd have to become a tee tootler.

    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    Suggestion, turn the camera flash off and just use the room light, looks like there is enough light to get a good exposure.

    It helps a bit. At least the flash glare doesn't wipe out this incredible color and grain pattern.

    I told you I would sell it for what I have in it. "0". Might call it a present from mother nature, or Hurrican Hugo. Now you gotta spend lots of time scrubbing it to make it come alive.
