    Feeling the need to add another rifle to the herd and would like to trade my art for your rifle(s). Stainless steel always makes me happier and I might even trade for factory ammo by the case... Rifles on my wish list for this morning include:

    AK47
    AR15-22
    Ruger Mini 14 / 30 in stainless
    44 mag lever action

    also interested in S&W performance center or stainless revolvers including
    .22lr, .357mag, 44mag, and .500mag {already have the 4"}

    Here is an example of a bench I currently have for sale at $1,200. For photos of past carvings of eagles, bears, wizards, trolls, etc; click the photo.

    Entire piece is Sycamore. I have a Woodmizer sawmill so mill my own slabs and even milled the lumber to build my solar kiln for drying lumber/slabs. It's sealed with 3 coats of marine spar varnish.

    My friend, I'm not interested in trading a firearm, but after looking at your website, I'm very interested in a purchase. Tremendous work, lots of personality. I'll be contacting you soon.

    Excellent work, but should probably be in the non-firearm section

    Or probably not since I'm asking for firearms in trade?

    Your ad was moved to the non-firearm classifieds as you are offering something other than a functioning firearm. People will still see your ad here and understand that you want a rifle. Best of luck!

    :thumbup:

    PS - very nice looking stuff!

    The 'play bear bench' in the original post has been sold. My newest carving is this eagle bench priced at $1,200. As always, there are plenty of bears, eagles, and salmon lurking within the logs of my wood pile ;)

    The eagle bench has sold! I'm willing to carve custom orders in trade for guns and ammo. :)

    If you're in my part of the world, trading for sawmill work is also on the table.
