Traditional Gunstocking with Mark Silver - 2 disks
This is a two disk, two-hour presentation featuring the phenomenal gun maker Mark Silver. This project documents his innovative recreation of 18th century gun stocking techniques. Using a curly maple stock blank with the barrel already inlet, Mark demonstrates using hand saws, planes, spokeshaves, drawknives, chisels, files & rasps to quickly shape a blank into a rifle stock. Mark also demonstrates how to inlet the lock & how to properly inlet a butt plate. An outstanding presentation of 18th century craftsmanship.
