    I would try to find Ed Yanchock.

    He is a poster on this board, and I have heard good things about his work.

    Dennis DeVault is the only one I would go to.

    Ray,

    I'm in eastern PA too. Make the trip to Canton, OH (about 6 hrs. drive) and spend the day with Dennis DeVault. It will be a complete education on stock fitting/making. Dennis is truly interested in making sure your stock fits you perfectly (vs. making money). One word of caution...be patient. Shoot the tri-stock for as long as it takes to get perfection. I worked with Dennis for months (at no extra charge) shooting the tri-stock and making adjustments. It was well worth the time and effort.

    Just got my doubles gun back. Feels & swings great. Now gotta learn how to shoot doubles. By the way the finished wood is much lighter than the bondo try stock.
