Here's a few pictures of a stock I started this week. Forgot to take pictures when I started. The stock is walnut, with an unknown light colored trim.

Larry,

I like that you angled the forend before gluing on the end cap.
A very nice touch! This is going to turn out well, I think!

I got this endcap idea from a friend (rfc member), out in Washington.

I love the grain on the light wood - could be poplar?

Very pretty but I probably would have used a piece of ebony for the but plat.

Nice work as always

I believe your mystery wood is spalted beech, it could be maple or birch, but it is definitely spalted.

My buddy give me this last year. I wasn't sure what to do with the 3 foot piece of wood. I guess it will make good butts and end caps. It's not 3 inches wide, so I can't use it for benchrest stocks.
