Well I've been working on this for a couple days now and I would like to post up a couple pics for your viewing pleasure. So far... I think it is looking pimp! Enjoy.

1. this is a cut out from a traced template. It looked UGLY.

2. The next cut out made it looked much neater. Still not the effect I wanted but it looked neater. I also lucked out on the magazine mount. It worked perfectly for me. I guess if you wanted to do it you could try and use the foregrip allen bolt...

So looking alot tighter, but then a little more sanding and staining did such an awesome improvement. Just take a look for yourself. The stock still is not secured and the metal plate is just an idea of how it look look when complete. The magazine is also going to be covered by metal.
3. SEXINESS so far.

The next step involved is the foregrip. But I am waiting for an apex barrel before i make one, I just ordered it so it will be a little bit before another pic is put up.

Thank you and hopefully some more pics up soon.

Well its a little rough around the edges, but its a good effort, not a big fan, but good creativity. The finish goes good wiht the wood.

Gotta ask what kind of wood you're using.....

Guessing by the lightness and the grain that you are using maybe pine or something? Looks nice, but soft woods are a bad idea. A little rough treatment and you'll get a split along the grain and you're back to square one. If this lasts, great. If not, use hardwood on round 2. I suggest walnut. Sure it is a little expensive, but it will hold up, and besides, you've already practiced making one the first time. ;)

Anyhow, If I'm mistaken and you've used a hardwood, then good for you. In any case, the woodwork itself is pretty.

Hey thank you for the replies, hehe.

Who doesn't like a thompson?? And the wood is probably really low quality, seeing as I got it from under my deck in a spare pile. I'm hoping this is gonna last a while.

If you're wondering... I'm getting the idea for the stock part from paintborg off youtube, just search that vid up.
