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.

    Getting the English Walnut blanks ready for the website over the last weekend and got a real surprise when I did the finish planing on E221. This blank has an excellent layout, good colors and distinct, dramatic moldlines with the added bonus of several very unusual (in walnut) fields of tiny, distinct "angel-step" fiddleback walking diagonally across the entire blank. This phenomenon occurs once in a blue moon in maple, but in English and Black Walnut - never - until now. Measurements are 20+" long, 8" tall at the butt, 4" tall at the receiver and 2 1/2" thick. Pictures should sell this Franquette English Walnut rarity.

    Please don't send me messages telling me that Uncle Horatio has 32 just like this in his barn that he's sellin' for $50.00 apiece. If he does I'll take 'em all.

    If I had a proprietor's reserve section on the website, this one would be in it for sure. Perfectly quarter-sawn and provided with a closely matching forearm blank, the price on this true one of a kind is $850.00, REDUCED TO $750.00, shipping included. First confirmation at the email above will be the proud new owner.

    Thanks for looking, Mike Mann WHITE CREEK GUNSTOCK BLANKS LLC

    Mike, I am not running your wood down, in no way, nice piece.But it isn't rare. I have been cutting for forty two years, and I have hundreds on hand. Sold Ljutic some real nice wood last week. Thank You David Boles

    i don't know dave. although these type of stocks used to be quite standard, the curl, and the blackline are becoming increasingly expensive and hard to find. of course this one ended up with you mike, it's a nice one. also, is that a knot? it looks more like some stray birdseye to me, just wondering, thanks - steven meads

    Wire, Ljutic and Tax, Thanks for the comments and questions.

    Tax, the "knott" is a tiny burl which by any other name should "not" be a problem in the finished blank. If it is, my policy is simple - replace the blank with another of equal value or replace the money. Period. Since my blanks are cut to at least twenty inches in length, there is plenty (probably too much) of room to move the pattern within the blank for optimum positioning.

    David, you have a PM.

    Jack, I readily admit that I don't know what causes the "Step", and the .410 has been owned by my young miller's wife since I bought it. I'm sure it has dispatched many a rodent and varmint in its tenure.

    Respectfully submitted, Mike Mann

    Well folks, now that we've been advised that there are "hundreds" of these available, I guess I'll reduce the price on mine, for the weekend only, to $750.00. This number will expire at midnight Pacific Time Sunday, October 16.

    Thanks for looking, Mike Mann
