This stock was carved from a laminated cherry blank. The stock took about an hour to carve and another hour to sand out the router marks. The forend design was inspired by a Cooper M21. The stock has a coat of tung oil and I’ll rub it out with 0000 stainless steel wool when it’s dry to the touch. Right now it’s almost as light as maple, I can’t wait and see the final dark color of the cherry.
