Forum: Introduce Yourself

Hi. Ive just joined on here the other day. Im a former marine and volunteer firefighter/emt. I got started carving a few years ago. Gun carving got me started and i keep expanding out of multiple interests. I now do to many different types of projects to list. I have just got started doing chainsaw sculptures and pencil drawing. I freehand all my layouts decided to put it on paper. Currently working on a custom carved frame for a pic i drew. I sell custom carvings but its tough getting a customer base built up. Ive got no training or classes just pure interest. I dont have a big shop full of fancy tools. I work out of my basement in an area as big as a large bathroom. I do alot of donations to good causes and from the few example projects you can see lots of gifts for family. Nice to see all the cool projects here. Thanks for looking and all the feedback ive got so far.

Welcome. Boy i could sure learn something from you on gun stock build. I just got a 270 Remington bolt model 770 with a synthetic stock. Would love to put on a Walnut or some awesome burl stock.

Thanks all. Burl gun stock would be cool. Ive been wanting to buy a cheap gun and carve it in black walnut but hard to sell around here. Maybe for myself if i find a cheap side by side.
