    Hi everyone, today I took some pics of the newest conus. Made with a cherry core, I wanted a chunky egg shape and that it would support 30mm bands (TBB). 10mm gap. Standard finish for me: 1000grid, steel wool, linseed varnish and satin waxoli. Hope you like it.

    edit: i got used to this TTF posts damn...my fault

    Cheers!

      Sweet!
      I'm so head over heels for Arturo's design, I had hardly considered changing it, except for a mini version.
      The curve on the target side is an elegant touch. And the cherry would be a beautiful base for any project.

      Thank you @KawKan, the elegant touch came out by accident, I had to round bottom target side cos it was just not comfortable with such a plump shape ;-)

      Great alterations from the original concept. Very stout looking for sure. Long and skinny, short and fat, or somewhere in between. Still a Conus that shoots and feels amazing.

      Stunning work . Like the egg shape concept looks really comfortable and would imagine it’ll take big bands well .
      Have fun with it fella
