    Fascinating photos of rifle stock carvings and much, much more . Enjoy !

    I was searching on line for ideas to refinish a Rem 700 wood stock of mine and came across this website https://www.pinterest.com/pin/46161964916193524.
    Some of the carvings are absolutely incredible. Also I was thinking of doing a burn technique and came across these photos. stock burn 4.jpgstock burn.jpgstock burn1.jpgstock burn2.jpgstockburn3.jpg

    When you are on the Pinterest site, if you click on a photo to open it, it will show you many other different rifle carvings . Also close out any log in and will continue to gallery .

    That looks like electrical carving, sometimes called fractal burning or some such name?

      Yea its a really cool process. You essentially run a current through the wood and the grain burns in a weird way. Ive seen it done on coffee tables and stuff.
