This is a piece of spruce that I cut on my sawmill on Mosquito Island off the coast of Maine back in the 1980′s. At the time time I didn’t realize how strong and light the wood was, and it turns out to be instrument grade spruce. My goal is to make a stock for F-TR class that is 4 lbs. or less while still having both an adjustable cheekpiece and adjustable buttplate and rail. The Spruce Goose really did fly.
