I have a passion for hunting, but also a passion for fine works of art with dead trees. Just wanted to share a few pictures and see if anyone else does any woodworking.45549394_738886436494398_2417339071727665152_o.jpg47108141_752360665146975_3183362904334270464_o.jpg47442875_757292957987079_3924282154879549440_o.jpg46503245_748752222174486_5158778789383110656_o.jpg44674097_730907790625596_7000755611117813760_n.jpg

I do a little woodworking.

Shooting line box. This is about the 3rd or fourth one. It took that many to figure out the best design.



This is an early cartridge box that holds 165 rounds of .45-100 or shorter. I build better ones now, but this was the first one.


I like to do stock and gun building work as well. This is my first muzzleloader. Not a very good picture but it has killed more deer than any other rifle I own.



I build tables and cabinets occasionally as well. I am fortunate to own enough walnut and cherry to keep me in lumber for the price of a bit of bandsawing. About $0.30/board ft last time I had some sawn.

That last picture with the scripture honoring the military is absolutely beautiful, and moving.

I enjoy turning dead trees into useful projects and am fortunate to own a small portable sawmill and timber property. Some of the fruits of my labor......

Before I became a drain on society, I built oak and ash cabinetry and furniture for living. I also used to split 6 cords of firewood every winter with a maul. So I have tired of serious woodworking:D.
Now my woodworking is confined to non industrial tools, no backwork, and my garage. Small simple stuff like bases for all our Europeans and tying stations for my wife's expert skills.......

I'm sure I've lost some past work up there too. I wish I had more pics to post, but NDA's are a bitch.
