 Working with wood has always been a part of my life in one form or another.  I enjoy the warm feel of wood and the natural beauty in the woodgrain. I have a passion for woodcarving, especially Custom Gunstock Carvings. It’s important to me that my carvings enhance the beauty of the wood, not cover it up.

My enjoyment comes from making your firearm a true family heirloom for you. Each piece is uniquely designed and will never be duplicated. Your hand carved stock will become a cherished heirloom that will Shotgun Pheasant carving inmagebe passed down from generation to generation.   


Custom carving and engraving is not just for gunstocks, but can be added to almost any item.  I regularly carve and scrimshaw on both antler and bone.  You can have a knife personalized for you or for someone special.  Engraved knives make great gifts for the groomsmen at weddings.   10-22-squirrelEngraved gifts for the wedding party are always appreciated long after the wedding day. 


Maybe you want to give a special Thank You gift.  Giving a bottle of wine or spirits 100_1455engraved with a special message is a great gift for a special occasion.  How happy do you think your dinner party hosts would be if you brought them an engraved bottle of wine as a “Thank you”?    There is truly not an occasion that can’t be made more special with personalized engraving.

 Joe Cummings specializes in Custom Gunstock Carving. He has perfected many patterns such as the Basketweave and the Fishscale. He has also designed many of his own custom carving patterns. You can click on the pictures to get a closer look at these intricate patterns. The checkering on most guns today is very poor in comparison to what it used to be. Checkering today is done by machine, whereas it used to be carved by hand; the results are just not as good. Look at some of your guns closely and you will probably feel the same way. Some of Joe’s clients have him take out the checkering and replace it with the basketweave or fishscale pattern and then accent it further with leaves, acorns or even a nice border. This dramatically improves the look of the gun, but it also feels good and improves your grip while shooting.


Nothing makes a statement quite like a Custom Carved Attache Case. These wooden briefcase are made from the finest materials and are of the highest quality. Design your own carving or let Joe put a design together for you. The cases above are a few examples of some cases Joe has carved in the past. All of Joe Cummings carvings are one-of-a-kind originals and will never be duplicated or copied. This makes the ultimate business gift.

Low-Relief Animal Scenes


Use these designs to carve gunstocks— or anything else!

By Lora S. Irish

Carving the stock can add personal value and beauty to a gun. No matter your skill level, Lora S. Irish’s new book, 35 Gunstock Carving Patterns, will help you embellish your gunstock and make it a family heirloom that will be treasured for years.

Not a hunter? These patterns aren’t limited to gunstocks—you can carve (or paint, or woodburn) them on anything!

Getting Started

Always pick a pattern that suits your skill level. If you are a beginner, you can remove elements and simplify lines; if you are more experienced, add more elements or more details to the pattern. Keep in mind the gun’s purpose, as well. You don’t want to carve a water scene onto a gun used for deer hunting; you also don’t want to carve a very intricate pattern onto a gun that will be used heavily in the field.

Most gunstock patterns are relief carvings, which can be created with woodcarving tools like knives and handheld gouges. Relief carving gives the piece a rounded, dimensional look, which looks great on a gunstock.

Carving the Gunstock

To begin, assess the state of the gunstock. If it needs to be replaced, you can begin with a standard blank stock, a roughed-out stock, or a kit. Choose a hardwood such as walnut, cherry, maple, or myrtle for durability.

Carefully fit the pattern to the length, the width, and the curve of your gunstock. Use a photocopier to enlarge or reduce the pattern. Make tiny straight cuts or small V-shaped darts to fit the pattern to the curve of the stock. Transfer the pattern onto the stock using carbon or graphite paper. Carve the piece using your choice of tools.

Finishing the Gunstock

To finish the project, lightly sand the wood and remove excess wood dust with a tack cloth. Apply a hand-rubbed wax or oil finish that will enhance the grain of the wood. Test different waxes and finishes on scrap wood to determine which will be best for your gunstock. Don’t allow excess wax or oil to collect in the low spots of the design. Avoid colored finishes, high-gloss finishes, and paints.
