17” Tall - 38” Wide - 10” Deep (with stand)

Daisy Red Ryder BB gun purchased at a vintage store. A simple child’s BB gun turned into a work of art.
Half the fun of my projects is exploring thrift shops and junk stores finding objects and wondering what treasures might be hiding inside.
I also have some very nice friends who surprise me with objects that they have had for ever. The parts are attached with machine screws
that are saved when taking apart old adding machines, sewing machines or various other items. Holes slightly smaller than the screw shaft are drilled
into the wood so that the screws can grip the wood and hold the parts tight. I have a large assortment of drill bits. Glue is used only where screws
cannot be used. Sometimes I will take parts apart and combine them with other parts to create new “old” parts.
There is a lot of stepping back and visualizing what might be. The hardest part is realizing when it is time to stop, don’t over kill.
Most of the projects I create take 40 to 60 hours to complete. 
The title? This used to be my squirrel gun, very accurate but not very powerful, it just made them mad.

Mauser Upgrade - 2014

​This was the first piece created. It was just a fun project in the garage. I had several WWII rifles that were just for display and I decided to take one and have fun. The pieces were not attached in a way that it could be sold so after it hung on the wall for a year I decided to take everything off and create a new design with all pieces securely attached so that they could be sold. This gun then became "Fluted Mauser".

Daisy Red Ryder, carbine-action, two-hundred shot range, model air rifle.
BB gun found in a thrift store. As soon as I saw it I had the title in mind, too easy. So much for easy. A simple, small object that became anything but simple.
It was not suitable for a steampunk approach, but what? After staring at it for a long time the ideas started swirling. Let’s step aside from the norm and follow 
the movie. Simple, not really. There is more research and production in this project than most of my other larger creations. I hope you enjoy all the
different images as you relive this classic.
