1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I found a few more Black Myrtle 2 piece sets a few weeks ago and have just finished cleaning them up for presentation on TS.com. These sets are fifteen years old and are some of the densest, darkest Myrtlewood pieces I've seen. Because they are very dense they are also very heavy. Stone dry and very stable they are ready to go to your favorite carver.

    The first is a huge blank with measurements of 20" long, 8+" tall at the butt, 4" tall at the receiver and a generous 2 5/8" thick. I took the pictures dry because they turned out almost completely black when moistened with anything. BM-2 has a shimmer behind the surface that doesn't show well behind the dry surface, but it will be there in spades when the final finish is applied. Great symmetry side to side and deep, deep brown base covered with black grain lines throughout.

    With the huge dimensions of this blank it will host any application. For those of you looking for a little heavier stock with a unique pedigree, take a close look at this one. The price on this set is $375.00 REDUCED TO #300.00 with shipping included.

    BM-5 is a little smaller in several dimensions and might be better suited for a smaller guage O/U or a SxS. Dimensions are 18" long, 8+" tall at the butt, 4+" tall at the receiver and 2 1/8 inches thick. It will host a tournament gun, but probably is a little skinny for twisted cousins, humpty-dumpties and the like. Like #2 it's very dense and has super symmetry side to side. I even managed to duplicate the light stripe on the bottom of the stock blank in the forend blank. The shimmer is more apparent even in the dry pictures of BM-5 and its forend blank.

    Because this one is thinner and a little shorter, the shipped price is $195.00 REDUCED TO #150.00.

    As always, the first confirmation to the email address above gets first dibs. For those who've never worked with Black Myrtle, grab one of these and give it a whirl. BM-5 would be perfect replacement stock and forend for an older European SxS originally stocked with straight grained dark English. Super dense and strong and would definitely be a conservative conversation piece at the Club.

    Thanks for looking, Mike Mann White Creek Gunstock Blanks LLC Your Myrtlewood Source
