I have some off-cuts of oak flooring I got at our ReStore. Since they are 2-1/2 inches wide, I thought I should get around to making a PFS. And I needed to make a Lizard!
I used all the wood I could. Full width of the thin section that is 2-1/2 inches, All of the depth for the handle profile.
I cut it out with a handheld jigsaw and shaped it with a rasp and sandpaper. Sanded up to 400 grit and then wiped on a few coats of BLO.
She is comfortable in the hand and shoots as well as I can manage!
