This is a 60's vintage Sheridan Blue Streak I've had for a while, restocked in a simple, but elegant claro walnut of about the same age.

Bullets are not hard on my saw, but spikes, nails and barbed wire always put the finishing touch to a bandsaw blade. I was able to pull this one out, then sawed through the hole to see how deep it went. Interesting to see how the spike altered the color of the wood.
Sometimes surprises lurk in seemingly solid gunstock blanks.
Overhead view of my carving room in the old shop in New Mexico, just completed winter of 06. Previously I had been working in the unheated and poorly lit wood storage room, so this is quite a treat for me. In the foreground you can see my two carvers, a 6 spindle (blanks in place ready to be carved) and a 2 spindle on the right for custom work. The bandsaw, boring machine and hand work area in the background.
