    I love the wood in the design - I've seen some on AR's before. It really makes you do a double-take and see if you're not really looking at a new kind of AK. Very cool. I'll take 2 (since 2 is one ;)).

    When you're firing both simultaneously, don't forget to yell "get some!!!" Otherwise you spoil the whole effect.

    The sights look pretty dainty. Wonder how it'd fare on a 4' concrete drop test right on the sights.

    The wood accents the form nicely in presentation.
    I'm doubtful of durability given the grain in it. It looks like Oak?

    Then again, lamination techniques have come a long ways. Very creative, nonetheless.

    I attempted hand carving a magpul AFG once. It failed horribly, LOL It would be nice to have the skills to pull something like that off 20160223_070934.jpg

    That's nice. Kinda looks like 308's handy work. Very clean, finished, anal-retentive with just a hint of anal-expulsiveness for artistic creativity :D

    Looks cool. But big question no one asked. When all else fails, can it make decent firewood? :D

    You didn't toss that out did you? A little work with some files and sandpaper and you could transform that into a usable piece. I'm impressed with how far you got just carving.

    Its in my emergency firewood box of failed wood projects. :)

    I would not try to salvage this one. I'd try and make another one out of better wood. Plus I would need to figure out how to do a dovetail for the picatinny rail. Too many projects and too little time.

    Though I'm but a humble novice woodworker, seems like a simple solution to the rail issue would be using a router table and a dovetail bit, assuming you could find one that matches the proper geometry of a pic rail. Build a little jig to hold the whole thing straight and two passes - you're done ;)

    Im no longer allowed to buy a tool that I use once for some throw away project. my wife has caught on. :) I have a router but I'd need to build a jig from the existing crap I have.

    Ya know... I may just do that at the end of the year, or early next year! I'll have an extra "four figures" a month to play with (tax free!) starting this September... 15 years AFTER the divorce, it'll be ALL OVER!! o_O:D

    looks like it would work good on an m-lok or key mod rail with the right fasteners
