    "but one thing for sure he will get a fair price."

    Gordy - I completely respect that kind of attitude. Good for you. I hope that this wood benefits both him and you in a fair deal...oh, and benefits us with opportunities to buy great wood.

    Cheers

    Does an "English blank" refer to a type of walnut tree or wood from England? Pardon my stupidity but I knew of many sales years ago of walnut tree stumps dug-up in old California nut orchards. Could this be the source of the wood mentioned?

    Gordy,

    What is the average cost to have a blank turned into a proper stock? I have drooled over the wood on you site but have no idea what the cost will be to turn that blank into a usable fitted stock.

    Good luck with this.

    PS Have you ever heard of a gun stock made out of pecan wood? I have been offered and large enough piece for a stock and have thought about trying to work it down myself since it's free but didn't know if it is hard enough to actually use.
