Camo laminate. Some people like it; some people don't. It looks different once the finish is on it. It's nice to have choices.but I was given a preview of a beautiful stock from a lil ole stockmaker down Texas way. Maybe he'll come on and post the same pics he showed me.GI2
I like symmetry so I've considered "book paging" laminate in that way to give that effect. The countour lines are what give laminates their beauty. It's appreciated greatly by some and no some much by others.Tony, have you ever tried machining a laminate stock with the lamination several degrees off of the centerline of the stock? This would eliminate the topographic 'contour line' effect and might make for more of a tiger stripe.
I might 'commission' one if you're willing to give it a go... color of my choice, of course. GI6
By no means do I think his work is poop... far from it... I was just trying to get across how much I dislike the looks of these plywood stocks. Too bad for me too, because for where I live a "laminated" stock is actually pretty practical. Please forgive me, I meant no offense to his craft.While the colors may not appeal to everyone, I think the workmanship and quality fit is the topic here. The laminate is not my favorite, but I have some in natural hues that look fair and there is no arguing the stability. When it comes down to it that is where it is at. To some of us, the M14 is sexy but it will never be a Browning Superposed. It is a work gun and should wear work clothingGI7 I love fine woodwork in all forms, particuarly when it is practical which is the category this falls into. I do feel it is direspectfull to call someone's hard work "poop" though
