Has anyone used Myrtle wood for a gunstock blank? I just picked a up a few blanks and I am not too familiar with myrtle wood. The blank was cut in 2006 and looks to be very stable. The myrtle blank is the bottom one in the picture.

I know nothing about gunstock, but that sure is some gorgeous wood!

It looks like you’ve got some great looking wood for a gunstock. Myrtlewood makes great stocks.
