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

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!
