    That's a gorgeous one, Arturo!
    The burl is really dramatic.
    Excellent shooting, too.

    Glad you liked my friend ! I still have a little piece of that burl wood, planning to use it on the next build, wide fork tips for the TBB maybe ? ;) ... lurking for a design :D
    thank you for your kind words

    Enjoyed watching you shoot as always! If you are looking for design ideas, might try the PFS Mule. As drawn it is 60 mm wide, but would scale up nicely to 70mm or whatever you prefer.
    It would look great wearing burl wood.

    downloaded your template, the burl wood is only suitable for scales, I will need to find a core

    The PFS Mule is only a suggestion. Whatever you build will be beautiful and impressive!

    I don't have a Mule in my collection, I think I can grab aluminum (or copper) scrap sheets, adding paper micarta layers with the burl wood scales, that would be coooool !!!:cool::cool::cool:

    Excellent PFS and crafting.

    Beautiful shooting.

    And picohio is a fun word to say.
