To me, it is extremely difficult to checker "bare" gunstocks, especially those with open pores like American Walnut has. What I have found long ago, is, if that cutter hits a large open pore in the wood, that American Walnut is often found to have, the single line cutter will have a tendency to follow that pore, or open grain, and give you fits trying to cut a straight line.
