    Wouldn't it be nice to go to Gordon's place to look at and fondle his wood all day?

    Not many guys will put a picture of their wood on here and put a price on it.

    Thanks Gordy

    Rick- Many have often wondered about me. All I was trying to say is that Gordy has some wonderful hard and fancy wood. I have looked at a lot of wood and I like his the best. Surely, you are not expecting something like a double entente from me? That would only happen with people who like to play with words.

    I've bought two blanks from Gordy so far, but have done nothing with them yet. Both are very hard and dense, and should take fine checkering well.

    Gordy, John Bollinger was out at the club Wednesday night. It was the first time I've seen him there. For those of you not familiar with him he is probably the premier rifle maker in the country now, if not the world. One of his rifles sold at auction for $225,000 back in 1992. Check his website above. Anyway, I asked him where he got his wood, and he said most of it was English from California. Gordy, I told him about you, and left your web address on his answering machine when I got home. I can't afford his work, most likely, and I'm sure he is booked years ahead anyway, but I plan to take one of your blanks to his place to show him. Don't be surprised if you get a call from him one of these days.

    Gordy, I know you have told us in the past but how long does it take (roughly) for a green English blank to cure in your part of the country? Jeff

    Gordy- Your picture raised a question. I know that much good lumber can be harvested from a burn area. What about hardwood for gun stocks?
