A two and one-half hour presentation featuring living
legend Hershel House building a fine relief carved and
engraved flintlock rifle. From start to finish, Hershel
teaches you how to build a classic Kentucky Rifle beginning
with a maple stock blank, Colerain barrel, a lock and some
brass castings. He inlets the tapered and flared barrel,
then demonstrates how to fabricate and install the trigger,
sights, ramrod pipes, the patch box, silver inlays and
barrel tennons. The muzzle cap is cast in pewter. After
carving and engraving, the rifle is stained and finished.
An excellent two-disc DVD set for beginners and experienced
builders alike. Approximately 2-1/2 hours long.
