    LOL I was once a Mechanic for a food place they use ride on pallet jacks and the fork wheels had 8 sets of bearing per wheel. Perfect!
    I saved a few blown out bearings.

    On that stock and this grip I used 4.5" angle grinder to do 75-80% of the shaping the final and details by small tools and hand. Think of those tree trunk statues you see made from a chainsaw. Same technique pretty much. One thing is when you mess up it's pretty much over.

    That looks really good; you did great and that stock in the background looks good too. I've always been jealous of people able to take a simple log or plank of wood and transform it into art that'll last a lifetime

    You do some fine work- the grain on that wood is just: wow. What kind of wood is that?

    I used these pachinko balls for shootin' sling as not hardened so cheaper.
    As a kid I got those for free we lived near a riverbed that was always full of birds and rabbits. All those pachinko balls are still there somewhere.
