    One of our clients is having a birthday on Saturday and his very wonderful wife sent in his Perazzi SCO shotgun for us to redo the Turkish Walnut wood. The stock & forend had all the current checkering removed. This was a rush project so Cindy, Mike, & I worked the weekend to make sure it was completed on time. The photos below show the finished product and all I can say is Happy Birthday and I hope that he likes what his wife picked out for him. As always thank you for taking a look,

    Dennis Cindy, & The Crew

    Very nice! A difficult pattern to execute. The great thing in my opinion is Cindy has developed her own style of checkering. The checkering is distinct and unique to her work. It is now an excellent Identifier of work done by DeVault Industries.

    It is extremely difficult to keep the sweeping curved lines the same width on a curved fore arm, but it does break up the continuous checkering pattern around the curvature of the fore arm. Edges look great.....A+

    Dennis, are you getting more Turkish walnut in these days for your stocks? That is a beautiful piece of wood and your craftmanship is top notch!

    Right now I do not stock much in the way of Turkish. I have one piece on our web site that can be purchased. The cost of Turkish has went balistic in the last couple of years and there is plenty of good wood in the states to buy without going overseas. Look at the web site www.customwoodblanks.com to view the Turkish that I have.
