    Up for auction is a beautful Turkish Burl wood set---
    the measurements are

    Stock

    18 1/2 x 6 1/4 x 7 1/4 x 2 5/8----Stock sq off gives a full 2" front to back

    Forend

    2"x2 3/8 x 17 1/2

    There is a bow or slight belly---

    Left side is 1/4" at receiver and 1/2" at butt end

    This blank is suitable for sgl bbl,auto,standard #6 krieghoff,or sporting mdl----It would work for a cast to right or left due to the bow in the opinion of an assessment of a stock maker and fitter

    I had the wood assessed by gun stock maker and fitter.

    His assessment was that the wood is very nice and thinks it would make a great piece for anyone thinking about a project to enhance a gun----so much so that he is placing the 1st bid @ $350.00

    Total amount of the winning bid will go to Larry after the $$s are received the wood will be delivered----

    Any ??s are welcome to me by PMs---

    If a substantial bid is considered I can put you in touch with the stock maker by phone but only if really interested and not just for conversation.

    This wood is being donated free by an anonymous donor that wishes the best for Larry and his family---

    The auction starts as of this writing and will run 7 days to end 3/28/13 @ 7 pm
    est----

    1st bid is $350.00 all future bids @ $50.00 increments

    Thanks to all---

    Yac---I don't have a total yet but will advise as to what the total is when all is in---Larry went to work for the 1st time monday and had a very bad day.Very depressed and felt lonely---Had a better day tuesday because he had to work 12 hrs----I talk to him most every day to try to keep his spirits up.
    It's going to be a long haul---He is very appreciative of all the help received from TSs---To my count there is aprox 30 donations made from individuals and $900.00 collected from the wood auction----
    I think I have done all that I can to keep from over asking for more----I think there are more out there but I hate to keep uping the request----
    The guys on TSs have been GREAT----We are all family and when one of ours is in need we respond----So I say thanks to ALL

    George,

    I was just wondering if maybe we were close by now ... I know alot of people have sent checks to help ... I can fully understand that Larry is depressed but he better tough it up for his other kids sake ... I don't mind helping just wondering how much more help is needed, might have to write another check ... It would be good to know that the end is hopefully in sight ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Yac---I think we have done all that we can---I'm sure Larry will come out of it the best he can---He knows he has responsibilities---He has a great wife and 3 more boys to take care of----It's just been a few weeks and understanding is what he needs now----He also has a great father that is helping---A yr ago his father had a serious heart attack and Larry helped him through---It's now the father that is helping----One of the donors lost a young boy to a drunk driver 10 yrs ago and told me the hurt never goes away no matter how tough you may be----Larry will make it and it's through guys like you that helps with the pain---So thanks----If you already gave,I think that's enough---
    Your post is appreciated----

    Thanks again David and all who have contributed so far. This is one of the

    reasons Trapshooters.com community is so great. Please join the rest of us in

    helping Larry Tonda and family. A lot of us also have Teal Nobel and Jodine P

    and also Wayne Mayes in our prayers. Jodine could use some help also. This is

    what life is about getting out of self and doing for others. Ken U
