Stock 148 Benchrest

I just about forgot to take pictures of this stock I've been working on. Maybe one of you guys can tell me what wood this is. I'm sure its not walnut. It seems to be heavier and more dense.
The stock will have a raised cheek and the action is pillared. This stock is strictly for a right hand shooter. A lefty can shoot it, but won’t be as comfortable in the grip.

Hi ibjennings,

Need a little more information.

Where did the blank come from?
Is it stained or oiled with something that has changed its color?

On a wood buying trip to Oregon I got a straight grained Oregon Walnut blank that looked similar to this. The sap wood is what I would expect from Walnut. But you say it is too heavy for Walnut.

There are so many exotic woods from South America, Japan, Hawaii and Africa that it is a hard to say. If we knew where it came from it would really help.

Hi Frank
I canít tell you much about the wood. This is the fourth stock Iíve built from this wood. When you drill a hole in it, the wood will stick in the bit and have to be picked out. Kinda oily.
Iím using a lacquer for the finish.

Is this the same wood you built 133 out of? I drilled 133 for a rear tang attachment and it was oily. Produced the finest powder when sanded to.

I work with a man who grades wood for a saw mill in the evenings. I showed him a pic of 133 and he said from what he could tell in the pic it looked like walnut to him. He said he could tell for sure if he could see the inlet area without a finish.

Also a couple people I compete in BR with say it's walnut.

If it is, itís not like walnut Iíve worked before. It will also clog up a sanding belt really fast.

I finished the stock. The finish is lacquer. This is not a walnut stock, the nosecap is maple. LOP is 13 3/4 and the forearm is a little less than 3 inches wide. A lefty can grip this stock fairly well, but its built for a right hand shooter. This stock is pillared and has an adjustable cheek. Here's a few pictures, sorry for the quality of the images.

Hello
I just sold this one, but you can check out this stock in the classifieds, itís still listed.
I do have two more benchrest stocks listed. All of my stocks are listed by number. This stock was a little more because of the adjustable comb.
Most of my stocks are first listed for around $240 to $260. After a month or so, I will lower the price, if they donít sell. Click on the link.
