Hi James..

 

First step taken today, plank on its way, went for American Black Walnut in the end.

Timber is kiln dried, less than 12% water content :thumbs:

Hi James...all.

 

Well the Plank turned up today.

For anybody that's interested, bought the blank from Custom Stock Ltd Tel 0114 2472947 spoke to Richard, very helpful guy.

 

The cost for the blank £40.00 + £15.00 P&P, which I thought was very good.

Next job is to think about tool's and draw an outline to make a template.

Then the fun begins :D

Should have some nice grain.

 

Apparently the realy nice grainy stocks are made from the root of the tree, VERY expensive and quite rare.
