I used the few pieces of wood I discarded from my first gun and they were bowed. I...

I must confess that one of my (many) problems is that even if I am only going to make a one off (or two) of something... I like to do it the "right" way... Which means going full blown on tools,...

Re: DIY: How to cast PU handles for guns

Re: New knife
