    WALNUT BLANK

    Brought this from Brian Kerr (NZ Walnut) about 5 years ago for a project that never happened , I think itís a nice piece of wood with nice colour and grain flow through the grip . $400

    Nice wood @Lucky
    If you use a wet cloth and wipe it it will really begin the grain out and you can then post this pick if you want to help with your sale. Good luck

    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    @akaroa1 , no I cant remember but I'm sure I paid about $600 for it , I did wipe it with a wet rag in pics , it actually is a lot darker and nicer than the pics show in real life , it should make a really nice stock when shaped up .

    Out of interest, what gunsmiths are known for their woodwork? I have a slab of walnut as well that I'd like to turn into a project.

    @Magnus you really need to look for a stockists. As with all due respect to NZ Gunsmith’s it’s really a specialised trade. Even my Gun maker here in the UK sends his away to get done elsewhere.
    I think there might be a guy up in Raglan that dose it.

    Heís shifted into town. Asked him to build me a stock earlier this year and it seems heís no longer doing new stocks but still doing tidy up work. I think one of his sons is looking to take it on.
