The selection of wood for a custom rifle stock is mostly a matter of personal preference, although the weight of the wood can be a determining factor, depending on how the rifle will be used. Typically the woods that I use are mostly the different Walnuts, although I have also used Koa, Mango, Birch, Maple, Oak, and others. With the advent of modern bedding techniques, the use of other exotic woods (and even some lightweight soft woods) is now a possibility. A stock can be either carved from a blank or can be duplicated.

Also, below are some of the blanks that I usually keep on hand in various woods – both left and right handed.

    Dear Sir,
    I just found your website while I doing my research about the Custom-made Stocks for rifles, I saw the pictures of your work, and I would like to tell you how much I like your
    well- crafting wooden stocks.
    Personally I’m left-handed shooter; however, I’m wondering if you do ambidextrous fully adjusted stocks to fit shooters needs, the right & left hand on the same level?
    Because most likely… rifle owners will share their fun with their right-handed friends either in the shooting range or hunting seasons; therefore, I thought it would be really a great idea to have an ambidextrous Rifle.

    Sincerely yours,

  3. I keep coming back to your site. So much to learn, so much to admire. Someday I would like to have one of your stocks fitted to a rifle action that I have.

    i am interested in a custom wood or laminate stock that some say cannot be made?, when i came across your site. What i am looking for is a stock to accomidate a mcmillian 50cal repeater reciever and barrel. I can find synthetic tactical or competition stocks but its not what im looking for. Im interested in a piece that looks like a hunting rifle, maybe alittle oversized to house the 50cal but, a hunting rifle complete with pistol grip monte carlo style cheek rest and checkering. As far as wood im looking for something NICE. A piece of exhibition grade walnut or better. Any info, advise, or if interested in crafting such a piece please contach me thank you for your time.

  5. I am thing about getting a rifle built: either a 7mm Mauser or a Remington 280.

    Where could I buy a good Mauser action ? What is the cost of a new Mauser action bought from Mauser?

    This rifle will not remain in a gun case. It will be taken to the rifle range and fired at least once a month.

    There is not a need for a high grade fancy finish on the rifle stock. it will only be damaged in fireing.

    A nice finish on the stock and a very accurate rifle that is nice looking.

    What is the cost ??
    Thank you, William DeVault

    Yes sir, I’m looking to get a nice rifle stock made for my new Ruger M77 Hawkeye 309 win mag. It has the bottom floor plate and came with the Hogue over molded green stock. I’d like to get a rough estimate for something like a black walnut in grade 2 or 3. Length of pull will be 13-3/4” with the recoil pad. Not sure what pad you recommend but I like the Limb saver or possibly a leather wrapped pad. Also on the stock I’d like to have a nice end cap installed and swing swivels and bottom grip cap. It’s a 300 mag so I was thinking for sure that it will need to have pillars installed and glass bedded but your the expert on that so whatever you recommend or do is fine by me. Thanks for your great work and I look forward to hearing from you sir. Have a great day!!!
