This is my partner, he put a custom stock on his doctors gun after the doctor fell and broke his stock a little while hunting.

Now that’s a well equipped and secure shop. Great looking stock! Love the grain and finish.

Very nice! Do tell more about that wood. That log doesn’t look like Walnut. I’m “stumped”...

To Ian’s question: It might be the oregon big leaf maple mentioned in his profile, although my concept of maple is that it’s not the best for gunstocks.

If that’s what this stock is, I will have to change my mind!
