New Checkering

Ballard

   I do quite a bit of new checkering too.  Some customers want a simple, tasteful pattern, leaving it entirely up to me to design something that looks "right".  Others know exactly what they want and supply a detailed drawing, or a photo torn out of a magazine for me to work from.

    Reproducing a classic pattern from an old original stock onto a new replacement stock is also a common request.  I tend to prefer traditional patterns, but I have done a few "Buck Rogers Specials" too.
