"A hobby that got away from me..."

Brian Board's introduction to guns came early in life but his fascination with them began during his seventh grade in school. He accompanied a cousin on a quail hunting trip and after that experience he knew he wanted to know more about how guns worked and how to make them.

Growing up on a dairy farm in rural Missouri with little time left for school activities or sports, he spent his evenings learning about guns. After reading Jim Carmichel's book "Do It Yourself Gunsmithing" he bought a set of checkering tools and started teaching himself how to checker and restock guns, beginning by checkering flat pieces of wood and recheckering existing stocks.

Around 1982 Brian began to go to gunshows developing an interest in Winchesters and the American doubles which led to a full time stock making profession by 1988. He describes his self-taught work as "a hobby that got away from me". His business has evolved to stock restoration of vintage collectable guns both restoring original stocks and creating new stocks that are historically correct.
