    Default own custom stocks!!

    last sat i was pretty amazed, it was the first time i actually saw Cobus's stock n gave me the ambition to try my hardest to actually purchase a piece of wood n make my own! thing is i feel its gona be a mess but i think its still worth a try! deos anyone know where i could get a good piece of wood from! the fact that its so unique is the whole reason behind this but also cos i enjoy the craftsmanship idea!

    Just bought a new HW80K and I don't like the factory stock. I'm torn between two options - order a nice Maccari Walnut custom stock for it, or get one made in SA that looks just like the Maccari design that I saw on the internet. Anyone knows a good custom stock designer in the Johannesburg area, especially Central and West rand?

    May I suggest that,unless you are well skilled as a carpenter, you use cheap wood to practice on a bit. Remember Cobuis and Stoffeltoo are well skilled and this was not their first attempts.

    Rosewood is a good wood to use. It is cheap looks good and not hard to work with.

    A call won't help much. You have to go and select your piece of timber from the floor.

    gerrief_yeah dont think i want to tackle an expensive piece as a starter, want to get a cheap piece of soft wood to get the basics right! Cobus, what are the bare essentials(tools) i would need?

    Electric drill, Router, rasp, files and about 10kg of sandpaper will do the job.
    The most important thing :PATIENCE
    Plan your stock and only start cutting if you are sure of your design!
