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.

    Another Myrtlewood stunner on the for sale block. Fantastic pin burl inside larger sinewy burl with fiddleback and dark (almost black) streaks moving in and out of the surface. Measurements are 20"+ long, 7 3/4" tall at the butt, 3 7/8" tall at the receiver and 2 7/16" thick. Dry and ready to work, this blank comes with a caution sticker. Your stockmaker must be comfortable working with pin burl in the inlet area. Because Myrtle is much denser than most Maples and Black Walnut the pin burls shouldn't (and usually don't) present a structural problem in the inletting area. Some makers simply will not work with any wood with burl figure in the inlet area so please verify their willingness to do so. There is also a surface stress check on the right side rear that is visible in the picture. It is surface only and will mill out in the duplication process. For use on a pump or semi-auto, all of the above caution does not apply. This blank is priced at $425.00 and IS SOLD. It will be shipped with a closely matching forend blank. Shipping to the lower 48 will be paid by White Creek.

    Thanks for your comments, gents. After shooting at Eel River on Saturday in 65 degree weather and joking about all our shooting brothers and sisters around the country who were shoveling the walkways just to find the concrete, this is what we woke up to Thursday morning here in southern Oregon. I was on the way out to the hot tub on the back porch when I discovered:

    Eighteen inches of Kansas sunshine on top of the hot tub and no power for the next 24 hours. Thought I'd drive into town (23 miles) for a cup of warm coffee and I discovered:

    Yes, there's a full sized Cadillac under there somewhere! It's still under there today. So I spent the rest of the day painting those tiny burl spots on a piece of Myrtlewood so I could list it on TS.com. There was a beautiful full moon last night, at least there was at 3:AM when the power was finally restored.

    This blank is sold. Thank you to all for looking.
