Checkering

Checkering is the process of cutting a series of evenly spaced lines that intersect at a set angle.  The spacing of the lines determines how fine the checkering is.  The depening of the lines results in a series of fully pointed diamonds, which add the finishing touch to any stock. 

Original checkering can be touched up or completely recut.  Or new checkering can be added to a new or old stock.  Checkering is typically the last thing to be done to a stock.  Being cut over top of the finish.
