    Default Ideal wood for stock

    I know we are pretty much limited to beech and walnut when it comes to stocks, but surely there must be better looking wood around?

    I remember seeing someone during a hunting trip in Namibia with a Tambotie thumbhole stock on his 25-06. Vey beautiful!!!

    Is there somebody available locally that can duplicate stocks by using wood of our choice? Sure walnut is nice but after all I forked out a lot of tom for my rifle and I want it to look top notch!!

    Indigeounous (spelling) wood like Drolpeer is also used, it is heavy with fine grain and hard. I have used laminated imbuia for my S200. Imbiua works well but the dust may cause allergic skin and airway reactions to some individuals...

    I agree on Imbiua. You have to love the smell of it while sanding it!!!

    Hi Dieter,

    A wood that gets used in the UK quite a bit is Hyedua (I think that is correct spelling). It can have a fantastic grain pattern.

    I will e-mail you a couple of pictures whern my e-mail system is working again.
