Have a look at these lovely pieces of Walnut I bought. R26500 per M3. Works out to about R400 a piece. 850 x 250 x 65. Gonna take my time with this one.
Jip I really enjoy woodworking and I like clean looks. Oil not varnish. Has anyone seen the new Daystate Huntsman. Thats what Im looking at. Ill keep you all updated. My mahogany CFX had good reviews. Remember, different strokes for different folks. Im more into hunting. Not so much FT.
Look that about a grade 2 at best but with the right oil finish it will look very nice. Bottom line is a grade 5 walnut can look average with a bad finish and a grade 2 can look 2 grades better with a top notch finish. i would use some Arcin root oil on it first to bring out the dark parts more in the wood if youre going to use a neutral london oil on it you are going to get a very plain look. Contact Natal Gun Company- chat to Allan he imports the CCL stock finishing kits. Will make all the differnace in the world
I check again next week, but the last time I was there at Moot Arms he said it was exhibition grade and going for 13-16K!!!!!!!
Makes me get sick when I remember a few years ago at Vektor/LEW they had an adhoc braai, didn't have charcoal, so ended up using wood from their huge stockpile of turkish walnut blanks.
