I have a request for a rocking chosen built out of Turkish Walnut. My customer is big into trap shooting and he loves the Turkish walnut gun stocks. Anyone know if Turkish walnut is available in the United States and does it come in 8/4 and in widths bigger than 6”?

I believe it’s only available as gun stock blanks, and they can run in the thousand$. I have a neighbor who makes custom stocks , and he pays $3000 or more for prime Circassian walnut blanks.

I did a quick search and found this site http://www.turkishwalnut.net/index.html. I believe Clint is correct and that your client had better have a lot of money to spend!! It is some amazing wood.
