    How's this for a stick of wood, even if it is a sporting stock!

    Gordy,
    20 years ago we used to have little difficulty finding blanks like this. We built a pair of custom superposed with wood just as nice. It's hard to find it now. I assume it's because the California groves are gone. If you have similar, I'd be interested in seeing it. Jim

    I think you repeated your self this is the first time I have ever seen this after someone else had posted most of the time it is a 2 time in a row post

    But in this case you posted it 3 minutes later so I don't think that was the case

    So why not say something different since it was a new post.

    Ljutic 73, My brother (Tim Eyster) made the stock and did the checkering. His checkering is among the best there is.

    Steve W...That's nice wood too.

    Here's another we've just finished. A model 21 with an unusual custom shop design (cheek piece) in American Walnut.

    did ya ever notice how the issue of cost on the expensive stuff is side-stepped so easily????? No one EVER wants to admit that they paid $4000.00 for a piece of wood for a $2ooo shotgun. And the guy who sells wood won't put a price on a piece like that publicly, even when ask!!!

    I guess if you have to ask, you can't afford it!!!!!

    Gordy, Could we see a stick of your wood that you sell for the 5,000 range? I love looking at beautiful wood. Jake

    Gordy, could you please either post a couple pics of your "best", or email a couple pics of it. I am thinking of putting some new wood on my Ljutic.
    Thanks, Steve

    Thanks Tim, he was very happy. The great thing is that its not just another pretty stock. The dummy stock is modeled, shot, changed, then duplicated, ensuring comfort and correct POI. Any combination or style of checkering can be performed.

    We have several sources for our wood. Some we buy straight out of Turkey. Some of the American we buy from locals, cut and dry ourselves. We’ve bought some American from Cecil Fredi in Vegas. The blank for the nice English came from him, too. We used to buy a lot of nice English from Jim Preslick in California, but that’s all gone now. I assume that the blank for the stock above (from Cecil) was originally out of CA also.
