This weekend I worked on my Leman rifle. Attached are several pics of the steps to install the buttplate.
First, I laid out the pattern, then I cut it with the coping saw. Then using lamp black, I inlet the part. I used my large half round bastard file to remove the black spots as it went on. Once it was inletted, I attached it with screws and took the remaining wood down to the brass using a spoke shave I bought at Ezekiel Bays auction house. This took me about 2 hours from start to finish.
