Custom Carved Matching Shotguns for Three Sons
This is a commission done for a client that wanted three matching shotguns carved for his boys. They were all the same model and gauge – H & R Pardner model single shots in 20 gauge. He wanted them personalized for each son.
The client mentioned that the boys like to go Squirrel hunting so I suggested a squirrel carving on each stock along with the boy’s name. I told him I could make each squirrel carving different so each could really know their shotgun from the others. I really enjoy working on a gift for a young hunter. I like to believe that the carving will make it special and will help build a lifelong love of the outdoors.
The squirrels were carved in the laminate wood stocks, three different squirrels for three different young hunters. The were carved in an inlaid style and were stained a dark Walnut color after completion since, the wood is white when carved.
I finished their carvings with several coats of Birchwood Casey TruOil finish and they are now ready for Christmas. Following that, these individual Family Heirlooms will be ready for years of use and years of memories in the field.
Would you like something like this on your child’s or grandchild’s new firearm, email me and we can design your own Family Heirloom.
Thanks for stoppin’ by…
