    An Over and Under

    12 Gauge Italian Wheatherby Recency Shotgun on a piece of Birdseye Maple cast in Polyester Resin and installed on a Black and Gold Sierra.

    Showed this to a gun dealer that sells high end Italian, Spanish and German shotguns and shotgun loading supplies.
    He is going to supply me with photos of the shotguns he sells and wants me to make up few to give to his customers that buy his shotguns.
    Don't know exactly how many he wants, so will see how it goes.

    Also will be interesting to see how these will go over at upcoming guns shows!

    Frank,

    I copy a photo onto a water slide decal, apply it to a turned and finished piece of wood, then cast it in Polyester resin and the turn down and polish.

    That is very nice and not really my taste. However I can see where that could be a real money maker, and pay for a lot of tools.... I can see guns work very well on pens because of the long thin profile. I wonder what could be done with a running dog or horse. Some flushing game birds or water fowl lined up might work well. But those high dollar shotguns are a natural. You really think nicely outside the box Les..
    Nice Job!
