Take 20% off any listed price for the blanks remaining in this thread. Anything remaining at the end of the day Wednesday, September 22 will go back into the racks for sale another day. Got to clear the old drying racks of miscellaneous blanks that I've bought over the last several years prior to harvesting the Walnut orchard. The first five pictures are of California Claro blanks in various stages of the air drying process. I'll list the dimensions, price and moisture content of each as measured with my Wagner L-606 inductive meter. The last two are Myrtlewood blanks which are the precursor to the completion of the White Creek website that will have over 600 Myrtlewood sets pictured when it's complete.

All blanks will be provided with closely matching forend blanks, as always. Because of the low price of these blanks, I'm asking that you add $15.00 to help defray the cost of UPS shipping. I won't do a lot of selling, but will let the pictures speak for themselves. Here we go:


View attachment Feather1.jpg?


Feather #1 measures 20 inches long, 7 inches tall at the butt, 3 inches tall at the receiver and 2 5/8 inches thick. Moisture is 22% and price is $240.00


View attachment Feather2.jpg?


Feather #2 is less dramatic and measures 19 1/2 inches long, 7 1/2 inches tall at the butt, 3 1/2 inches tall at the receiver and 2 3/4 inches thick. Moisture is 30% and the price is $220.00.



View attachment Feather4.jpg?


Feather#4 is a high cut which measures 20 inches long, 7 1/2 inches tall at the butt, 3 1/2 inches tall at the receiver and 2 1/2 inches thick. Moisture is 24% and the price is $150.00.


View attachment Fiddle5.jpg?


Fiddleback #5 is solid end-to-end with measurements of 20 inches long, 7 1/2 inches tall at the butt, 3 1/4 inches tall at the receiver and 2 3/4 inches thick. Moisture is 12% - ready to work - and the price is $275.00 and IS SOLD. Extremely symmetrical side-to-side.


View attachment Fiddle6.jpg?


Fiddleback #6 is a dramatic candy striped blank with soft fiddle throughout. Measurements are 18 inches long, 8 inches tall at the butt, 4 inches tall at the receiver and 2 5/8 inches thick. Moisture is 14% and the price is $190.00.

This Myrtlewood blank contains three of the 4 possible variations that can occur in Myrtlewood, all in one blank. As my friend UNLOADER would say !!!!!!!!. This one is not for the faint of heart, but if you're the truly courageous type who wants a real conversation piece, this is it. Burl figure in the meat of the butt, fiddleback through the middle capped with dramatic Tiger Stripe through the wrist and inlet area. Right side view.


View attachment Myrtlealllt.jpg?


Left side view. Less burl, more Tiger Stripe and the same fiddle. This monster is ready to work at 12% moisture and measures 20 1/2 inches long, 7 7/8 inches tall at the butt, 3 7/8 inches tall at the receiver and is 2 1/2 inches thick. Price on this one-of-a-kind is $325.00 and IS SOLD.


View attachment Myrtlequiltlt.jpg?


Magnificent fine quilt in a Myrtlewood blank with monster dimensions. Left side view.


View attachment Myrtlequiltrt.jpg?


Right side view. Measurements are 20 1/2 inches long, 9 inches tall at the butt, 4 inches tall at the receiver and 2 3/4 inches thick. For the light wood lover who wants the density and workability of something other than Maple, this is your blank. Moisture is 14% and price is $275.00.

Please indicate your interest at the email address above. As always, the first time stamp on your email will get priority. I'll be in the middle of layouts on about 5 tons of Royal Walnut all day Sunday and will respond for the first time late Sunday night Oregon time. Thanks for looking.

Chuck,

Depends on whose "roll-over" it is. Two inches will accomodate most of the old-style rollovers which were designed as an integral part of the stock. That was before the days of "heads-up" design with offset and the complication of twisted sisters. Two and a half will more than cover any current application or combination of applications. For anyone who knows that they need more, all of my current slabs are cut to a full three inches which yields about 2 1/2+ after planing and shrinkage during drying.

The standard that I supply to DeVault is 2 1/2 inless he's doing a straight reproduction of an existing traditional stock.

Hope this helps,

Mike Mann

One time price reduction of 20% off the listed prices for Tuesday and Wednesday, September 21 and 22. Anything left unsold at the end of the day Wednesday will be put back in the racks for sale another day. Feather #1, Fiddle #5 and both Myrtles are a real steal at these reduced numbers. If you want more than one, let me know and we can work something out. If you have something to trade (not wood) let me know. Always interested in hunting related books and art.

UNLOADER --- "Ole Mike"? Seems the last time we spoke you were looking back a few years to find my tender age.

Remember, the remaining blanks are 20% less than the indicated prices until midnight tonight when I'll shove 'em back in the racks for a while. Feather #1 is an absolute steal and I'll entertain a worthwhile trade. Books, art, etc.

Let me know at the email above.
