Rising-Bite from the Raw Update - Gettin' Wood

Well, metal and wood have finally met and are getting along swimmingly. 

In these photos, the wood is wet with mineral spirits to show the figure.

I wanted the old-school look of a wedge type forend retainer, but with the convenience of an Anson latch.  The design I came up with achieves both goals.

Here's a video of the forend latch.
