Thank you for visiting!

Welcome!

 

Thank you for taking an interest in Custom Checkering by Sherry Abraham and thank you for visiting my site.

 

Please feel free to browse the links off to the left and if I left anything out, please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

 

Checkering is an old and interesting art. I began checkering in 1988. I was trained at Kimber of Oregon and worked as a contract laborer for eight years. Prior to Kimber leaving the state, I was their head checkerer!

 

All of my patterns are drawn on freehand and with a straight edge to fit each stock that I am working on.

 

You can send me the pattern you prefer or leave it up to me. You may also request an information package and see about twenty different patterns. I can easily copy from your drawing, doodle, rubbing from another stock or photo. I can also create a pattern just to suit your stock.

 

 Whether you are looking for something traditional or something with that special flare, I can come up with something tasteful and original just for you!

 

Usually I checker at 20 or 22 lines per inch. I can make it larger or smaller depending on the grade of wood. The higher grades of wood will allow for finer checkering.

 

Generally I checker borderless. A lot of the older style patterns called for an extra border that may be added at your request. These borders were originally used to hide "over-runs" so it is considered more professional to leave the checkering borderless.
