    Your work looks splendid, and has its own distinct character, congratulations once more!

    I love the contrast of the woods and the silver inlay. I use a lot of boxwood in my work and often I acid stain it with nitric acid and water 50/50 and just a little iron dissolved, afterwards neutralize in warm linseed oil for a day or two.

    Keep posting .... !

    Boy howdy, great bit of work you've done on the Sig. Classy looking piece for sure. I have been thinking of getting the same model for for my wife, not sure it will end up as pretty as this one though. Keep up the great work and the posts.-Jeremiah

    Wow!

    You've taken a very nice little pistol and turned it into a lovely work of art.
    Enjoy!

    rod, graniteguy52, Mike Cirelli, Titian, spadebit, FANCYGUN and KCSteve,
    Thanks for the kind words

    I enjoyed the fact, that my work is not perceived as off topic

    In reality, miniature carving, as a way of working is much similar to engraving, than to the classical "large" carving.
    For this I want to show my works in places like this

    Thanks again
