    Default Laminated wood block for making a new stock

    Hi everyone,

    Mike Brews has done his magic and I have managed to find an S400 stock to use for a long term project of making an MPR or even custom FT rifle stock. I have friends that dabble in carbon fiber but planning to do the main design in laminated wood, can anyone point me to a local supplier that can assist with a raw laminated block suitable for a stock? If at all possible the idea is to incorporate some carbon fiber but only if it works with what we can come up with as a functional design that suits the wood overall look.

    Thanks in advance.

    Kevin Airvolution used to make laminated wood, not sure if he still does however he is near you so chat to him as he also does carbonfibre goodies and he is very creative.

    I admire your endeavour Ian.



    Perhaps getting hold of some soft wood to do a 'first iteration' of the design would be an idea? Also, it gives you a 3D reference for the final?

    Laminates (and expensive hardwoods) are generally harder than a mother-in-law's heart, and may frustrate you?

    Rather 'fail fast' on rubbish and win FANTASTICALLY on the second go, with experience to back you up?

    Got to agree with Blud on this one. Use a soft wood on your 1st try

    Laminated blanks from S & O where in the region of R8k.

    Thanks everyone, good advice from all. When ready I'll make a mock-up stock with softer wood and fiddle with the design from there.
