    My first thought is Curly redwood. My second is some sort of cocabolo. Kirk

    Is it stained or is that the natural color? If natural, my guess is Koa.

    I don`t think you can get maple to take that much color. Give us a hint, where does it grow?

    Curly Redwood- KRK32 got it

    infused with resin -

    It looks much more stunning when its upclose- you see all the individual grains as you do in redwood

    Its on one of my guns now-- hopefully the resin treatment will lead up to its advertisement

    Gene..I read about the resin infusion process some years back and I thought it could be applied to some intersting woods that otherwise would not be suitable for gunstock use. Nice to see it works!
