    I'm looking for a good stock maker/finisher that does good checkering work. I live in Las Vegas and I have a high-quality stock but I want to put a different checkering pattern on it. This would require sanding the old checkering off and putting on the new pattern. Are there any recommendations for someone that would do a good job for this type of work that lives out West somewhere? Thanks.

    Thanks for all the input. I know Simms does good work but he doesn't have a web site that I could find? I checked out the Custom Diamonds web site and that work looks great and the prices are reasonable.

    The lady that headed up the Kimber checkering department is doing custom hand

    checkering out at Carlton Oregon. Can't remember her name but believe it may

    be Cindy something. A friend has been having her do work on custom stocks for

    him for the last 3 or 4 years. I have seen the work and it exceptional.

    I probably can get her number if you want it.

    Ya, I think Sherry Abraham may be it. Her place is out of town and kind of hard to find, but I think that is her name. She has stocks comming in from all over. One wood I know she doesn't like is birdseye maple. She said the birdseye part sometimes comes out when she is working on the wood.

    The closest to you is probably Justin Sip in Toquerville, UT ( just off I-15 a few miles north of St. George). He is just finishing a stock for my Ruger #1. It's only a couple of hours north of you, and he does beautiful work. It would be well worth your while to go see him.
