    Was given with a challenge I had never been faced with before. A buddy asked me originally to make a new foregrip for his BIL's Old single shot 12 gauge. Wellll....he liked it so much he scraped the idea of wrapping the butt stock with leather and decided i needed to make it a new one instead.

    It was all done with handsaws, a draw knife, a spoke shave, chisels and a couple homemade D Bits and my lathe (to drill the tang bolt hole).

    Happily pleased with the wood I got from @FranklinWorkshops and in how well it turned out for my first ever.

    Congrats! What a beauty! And thanks for the tutorial. How did you secure the stock when you were shaping it? With just your vise? Chuck

    Thanks @Nature Man ! Yes, I used that vise and a homemade version of a carving bench I built that attaches to the bench vise.
