Questions about the book The Rifle by Gary Paulsen-----What gave Cornish the idea to make the rifle?

He got a piece of really nice wood with a stack of "blanks" he acquired from a carpenter. Most of the pieces of wood were just plain cherry or walnut, but the one special piece was made of striped or "curly" maple; it was full of "birds-eyes" (tiny knots that would make the wood look spotted and tiger striped when finished and oiled) and was just generally a really nice piece of stock. And so, he decided to make a rifle to match the wood, the rifle of his dreams and drawings.
