    Cherry Wood Rifle Stock?

    Grew up on an orchard and had to split my share of cherrywood under the maul, but - How does it stain, how does the grain pop? I have a few choices on my next build, it is the same price as standard maple, but $200 below deluxe maple. What say ye?? Thinking browned iron throughout for metal and thought it may be a fit for a non contrasting dark rifle.........

    Funny, I was driving by an old apple orchard today and had the same thought. There is a hardwood lumber mill near by and I keep meaning to drop in to check out their stock.

    I don't know how Cherry would hold up but the grain and color is fantastic from the right piece

    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    There is no place in an anti's head where reason can enter. from a Napoleon saying with a tweak.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    I'm surprised that someone hasn't designed a Ross Rifle stock, practically all of them I've seen for sale are chopped down.
    I have no signature block.

    Not made of exotic hardwoods they don't. What I am looking for is someone with a stock replicator that can make me some ultra, uber fancy furniture for a couple of upcoming creations.

    What’s the minimum thickness you can get by with? I might have some thicker cut planks that have been air drying for almost a decade now.
