Exhibition Grade Marblecake English Walnut Gunstock Blank

2 9/16" thick x 3" to 5 7/8" wide x 18 1/4" long

One out of many thousand english walnut trees across the globe will yield the characteristics displayed in this one of a kind blank. The high-end collectible gun market refer to the striking color contrast and grain flow as marblecake. This blank was sawn from a variety of english walnut known as franquette. We included an image of the end grain at the butt section to show the depth of marbling in the blank. The wood is blemish free in the template area and 99.9% blemish free overall. Air dried over 4 years to 8% moisture content. The template is for a Perazzi Monte Carlo style shotgun. The template images were taken dry with no finish applied and we used alcohol for the dampened shots.

A perfectly matched forearm is included measuring: 2 1/2" thick x 4" wide x 14 3/8" long. Price: $1,250
