Amateur hackery on a Savage stock Login/Join

Larry (Tinkerer) came over today so I could turn some lovely Claro Walnut into smoke. He wanted the basic bits of the stock cut with a degree of accuracy and I'm got a Gorton Super Speed vertical mill that doubles as a one ton router. We knocked out the basics and he will finish the rest by hand.

I'm a bit of a newb when it comes to machining wood so I probably got the feeds and speeds wrong but the wood looks really nice. I can't wait to see it when he's done.

Here's a rough-n-dirty video of the work.

Vertical mill - best over arm router I have used. Mine are knee mills a Bridge port, a millport ( bp clone- old) and a Frankenport and an old #333 horz. mill
Over kill for wood working but fun.

Nice start feets. Larry hope you keep us updated with pics as this one progresses. Used to be lots of Savage guys showing off their builds in here around 2010. Not sure if they are still around or not but I never see a post from them anymore. EugeneinNC comes to mind with that purple stocked Savage on a PTA sitting on his fuzz rest.

I am one of the lucky ones. I am a new and very proud owner of one of Larry's beautiful pistols. His wood work is amazing and he is very knowledgeable about these pistols. Feets, you are in for a treat.

Actually, its not Feets, but another member who has been waiting so patiently for me to fight my way through cancer and a heart attack while working on his stock. But progress is being made. I will post a pic or 2 of progress as its happens.

His Striker is awesome, and his will have my best work to date, with his design and my best workmanship.
