Staining time, I thought those shims around the sideplate would disappear with stain but I had to use a different kind of maple and they didn't darken, I will get out my leather dye and artists brush and make the disappear today before I put on the next coat of finish. I had one of those days when I inletted the side plate, the plate shifted without me noticing it while I was scribing around it prior to inletting.
Since the previous thread was shut down (locked) by our new moderator, I thought I would start one up again, as per the suggestion.
So, let's get this thread going again, and share your muzzleloading related adventures of the day!
Finished tuning , browning , and lubing a flint lock . Final assembly starts tonight. Then wax her up and to the range. Gotta make some .562 balls. Have to put the stuff in a shot pouch ,so she's ready for sight in and huntin.
shot my Mortimer. used last months member's target. just for s&g's. may just go ahead and shoot this month's target as it was shooting so well.
worked some on the tang i am making for another flinter. had it mostly roughed when i noticed the tang was going its own direction from the block. had to hammer it straight which broke part of the weld so i had to fix that. that's when i figured it was time to go shoot!
