Thanks Saeed. I'm no carver or checkerer, but sure love to see the results of those who are.

Thank you Saeed. Now let's see if we can fill this forum up with beautifully executed work, and learn along the way.

Agree M Ullmans products are top quality, with his larger shop he's scaled up his production capabilities and is filling the void left by other makers.

If time is a premium, it's cheaper just to buy from the professionals, my flat top checkering tool attempts have been pretty pathetic. I've all but given up on the idea, it ain't easy, for me anyway.

I have done about 12 stocks. Two of the are pretty good. Checkering is very hard for me. Must focus, go slow, and take breaks. I really enjoy it and the shaping/finishing as a hobby.

Thanks Saeed.Looking forward to some pics. I still have my checkering tools from the 80's but I can't see well enough anymore to do it.But I still have that mind set that you NEVER sell tools.

Ive had the same checkering tools for 40 plus years and I made my own cradle that goes in a vise on a trailer hitch ball, so it moves around as needed...since a recent hand injury from a roping incident I can't checker to suit myself anymore..I may sell my tools and cradle if anyone is interested..I probably won't do anymore stock work except for myself and that's a maybe..Good checkering really makes a rifle stand out, its a touch of class...a stock cannot be custom without checkering IMO..I look forward to this thread..

I have a similar unit that I built when I was building rifles in the 80's.I built it out of unistrut + allthread rods to hold the nose piece in place while drying. The blend of Rosewood end caps to a birdseye maple stock is very pleasing.
