Project Information

I just finished this black walnut and cherry, thumbhole stock. It's going on a Remington 600 in .308. The stock was sanded to 180 grit and a couple of coats of tung oil have been wet sanded to fill the grain. It's ready for final sanding. The little dings and nicks that are present don't show up after rough sanding to 120 grit. It's only when the oil is added that the flaws show so they can be fixed. There was one knot that I thought was solid till I started carving. It crumbled and had to be filled with sawdust and epoxy. The cherry will darken over time to a rich chocolate color that's almost as dark as walnut. Only time will tell what color the cherry will have.

You do some nice work.
Did you make it for a coustomer and if so how much does a stock like that cost?

Very nice. Hopefull the chery won't darken too much, you will lose that wonderful contrast of the woods.

I carve stocks with a 2 1/2 hp router… No, I wouldn't believe it either. Here's a project I did to explain how my carving duplicator works. This stock was made for a customer in California. The Lumberjocks site makes it easy to quickly put up pictures for the customer to see his stock before I ship it.

Each stock is a one of a kind custom stock. Prices depend on the wood the customer wants.

Excellent craftsmanship now my rifle is jealous but I don't know if I could hunt with such a nice stock without fear of scratching it. My sweaty old camo hat is off to you!

Beautiful work, Hal! Makes my Ruger M77 MKII .30-06 w/ comp "paddle" stock jealous. Seriously, I'd like to have you make a stock for my big mama rifle but will probably have to save for a quite a while before that's possible.

Awesome job on your gun stock. I have a 30-06 that i have bought several years ago from a neighbor. The stock is beat up but the gun is in great shape. One day i might make a stock with the laminated wood. Thanks for posting.
