This gorgeous stock was crafted by hand. The detail in the deer, the checkering and the well-rendered oak leaves are the mark of a true artist. To see Paul Stevens’ website go to cottagecraftworks.com

An American bison set in a dot-relief background with grass at his feet. A border of feathers and arrowheads frames the picture.

Another detail from the bison stock. I like the feathers emerging from the checkering on the grip.

The artists can make people as well as animals. Here two Native Americans armed with rifles are following a trail.

This close-up of quail in flight shows the unique marks of hand work, unlike the “perfection” of laser engraving, which lacks soul and character.

This bugling elk is set in a wonderful mountain setting. The basket weave on the grip shows tremendous depth.

A detail shot of the bugling elk. The scroll border provides a nice frame and reinforces the hand-done nature of the art.

This basket weave on the grip looks as though it was made of wood that grew in this pattern. Outstanding work.

I’m guessing this stock was destined for a Browning A-Bolt. This is much more interesting grip cap design than you’ll ever see from a factory gun.

The rough-hewn detail in the script letters gives the artists work tremendous character.

Even a small embellishment like this squirrel can turn an ordinary .22 into a family heirloom that will be passed along for generations.
