Custom Gunstock Carving by Master Wood Carver Joe Cummings

Something as simple as leaves and acorns dress up a shotgun quite nicely. Surprisingly, this pattern feels really nice in your hands and adds grip to the gun.  Beretta Gunstock Carving Image Custom Carved Shotgun Image

I carved this rifle to tell a story of how a young girl lost her first elk. It tells a story how mother nature sometimes has a different plan. Custom Hunting Rifle Carving Image Engraved Hunting Rifle Image
This gunstock is carved with four different species of sheep, known as The Grand Slam. This sample gunstock also shows the basketweave and fishscale patterns. Gun Engraving Image Engraving Guns Image
Pheasants and other upland game birds add a unique touch to any shotgun. This shotgun also has elegant scroll carving outlining the fishscale pattern. Shotgun Carving Image Fishscale by Joe Cummings Image
Sometimes people say to me, "I wouldn't dare take that gun hunting." I say use the gun, put some scratches in it, give your grandkids some stories to pass on about grandpa's gun. Shot gun engraved image How to carve shotgun image
Notice the inlay work on the forearm of this rifle. It adds a unique touch and is great for embedding names or designs into gunstocks. Wolf Carving Gunstock Image Gun Inlay Image
