I want to welcome Bill Dunham from Grundy Center, IA. to my shop. Bill works for Fishers in Marshalltown as Field Technical Instructor. He has also taught many levels of woodworking classes, construction classes, drafting classes, metals classes, and many others.
Bill was surprised to discover my shop was a separate shop from Toad Hall Rifleshop.
He became more interested in building
rifles as he learned more and more about my family’s genealogy. He
discovered a direct
line back to the Revolutionary war were they were in the North Carolina Militia
in what is now
Bill decided he wanted to build a Lancaster rifle similar to the Dickert rifles his ancestor used during that time frame. The following are some photos of the progress. I'm sure Bill would welcome any questions you may want to ask him about his family history or the project he is working on. His web address is: William.Dunham@EmersonProcess.com.
