Like the bullet!

Grease, was that a shop accident on your hand? Or trigger finger surgery?

ha ha, trigger finger surgery while you're cutting out a gun.

Seriously, is that a big deal to get done? My little finger is curling up for a few years now, thinking about having it looked at.

Had a little extra Walnut laying around...

Had to machine it in two pieces as my machine does not go that big!
Lined up really well!

THANKS VECTRIC for the GREAT software!
