Latest gunstock carving

Hi ,  I just wanted to let everybody know that I have added a few pictures of the last gun stock I carved. It seems that Bears and Elk antlers are popular. This gun also has a basket weave pattern on the grip and a basket weave with an inlay in the forearm.  I don’t have more pictures of this gun but these will give you an idea of how it turned out. The pictures can be found in the carving gallery. They are the last 3 entries. Thanks for visiting and looking at my latest work.

Welcome To Rich Legarra Studio Blog

Bear on 270The Rich Legarra Studio specializes in relief carving gunstocks. I will be happy to discuss your ideas for a carving and come up with a one of a kind design that is focused around your likes. I specialize in full scene wildlife but will be happy to create a pattern fitting your thoughts.

I can remove the factory stamp pattern on your gun stock and replace it with a basket weave or fish scale pattern which may be enhanced with leaves or a scroll design, it is up to you. The carving will enhance the beauty of your gun as well as improve the grip and value. I can also inlay a feather, buffalo skull, or some other design you might like, or maybe you have a brand you would like to have on your gun, or even your name or initials. We can also discuss any other ideas you might have for woodcarvings. I am sure we can come up with the perfect design to fit your ideas.
