It is now finished, a .36 cal that I have always wanted.
Though I usually choose Cherry, I really like the medium-grade Maple stock that Katherine and/or Jim selected for this one. More figure than I expected! After doing all the prep work and staining it I decided that I would like just a bit more shine to it so I wiped on a few extra light varnish applications.
I graduated the nose of the comb down a bit, added a simple toe plate and also a German Silver Hunter Star on the shaped cheek piece, with just a simple line carving behind it for decoration.
I think it looks sweet.
Now back to the bench...

Yup, I want an apprenticeship program to start to learn this. You either have the skills or you don’t. Your work is absolutely beautiful.
