Two of our students started Colonial American Pistol kits last year during the Workshop and returned this year to finish them. Both received aqua fortis stain and a first coat of linseed oil finish this morning! It's always fun to see a project through from start to finish and see that first coat of oil hit the wood! ...

John started with an old silver quarter, shaped it into an oval wrist inlay, laid off and inlet it, hand made coin silver nails and perfectly finished off the wrist inlay. Then we used the wrist inlay as a demonstration for our engraving students. It's always fun to see an item even as small as a wrist inlay go from start to finish using all 18th Century techniques. ... See MoreSee Less

Steve Midkiff finished up this carving motif yesterday using the techniques he learned last year in our Carving Class and applying them to his rifle. Steve built this rifle from a blank, making all of his hardware by hand including a hand made brass patchbox, buttplate, sideplate, ramrod pipes, muzzlecap, trigger and triggerplate. He has been building these skills by attending our Arms Making Workshop year after year, always looking to progress his skills and knowledge on 18th Century gunsmithing. ... See MoreSee Less
