    Caragana Series

    Left to Right:
    Patriot, Presidential, Jr. Gent, Modified Slim and an Aero.
    All sanded to 400x, buffed with Ultrafine Steel Wool, burnished with Caragana wood shavings, and burnished on 6 coats of BLO to give the barrels a nice warm wood feel.

    Les, they are all winners, but really like the looks of the fourth one from the left.
