    Lee - This might be a bit of a hike for you, but I would seriously consider going to Kohler in Racine, WI.

    There are two I know of. Tom Darbo at the Auora sportsman club does good work. Al Branner at the Frankfort SC does great work. I have seenseveral examples of his work and they are outstanding.

    I just had Tom Mason & Co. in Downers Grove make a stock for my Silver Seitz. He did a wonderful job.
    Here's his website and info. I suggest calling him rather than emailing him. Tell him you heard about him from me and TS.com.

    Tom Mason has done a lot of work for me and is GREAT to deal with, I have been very happy and everyone I have sent to him has been very happy with Tom and Mike.
