How to make a guntock
I have started to make a series of videos on how to carve/make a guns stock from a blank. They are posted to Youtube. Have the first 3 up (intro - who I am, and the next 2 are on wood selection), several more to go. Basing the level of information on assuming folks know what end of a chisel to hold onto and going from there.
The next video will be on tools. I have a few home made ones, and a few specialty ones that can make life easier. It will also include some de-bunking of myths ....I hope.
After that will finally be inletting, shaping, etc.
Since info on what I do is so limited, thought this might help. I am a gunmaker that hand makes firearms, and I am a dying breed. What ever I can pass on, I really want to. I'm 54, so still young enough to not be all gray hair, but old enough to notice how few of us are really left.
If you have any questions, please pass them on. If they are repeated enough, then it would be a good idea to include them in one of the videos. Please add any feedback you can think of. I have to guess at what info is needed.
Search on Youtube for Chris Knerr - I'll show up somewhere.
In the mean time, ask questions and best of luck with your" wittlin'"!
