    Butcher Block Gunstock

    Here are a few pics of a Rem. Rolling Block Stock, I am making from a 100-year-old piece of maple butcher block. It came from a historical building from downtown St. Louis.
    The stock is still a work in progress

    That is some cheekpiece !

    Looks very, Very Nice.
    I HATE auto-correct


    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    My Experience and My Opinion, are just that, Mine.

    Pretty work, I like when old is recycled into something new. Your donor wood ought to be stable by now. I restocked a 1970s Navy Arms 45-70 carbine a long time ago. Can’t wait to see the completed rifle.

    I haven't picked one yet, but one of these days, I'll probably start by trying IMGUR
    There are lots of Members here that use it, and I haven't heard any complaints yet.

    When I first read the description I thought it was an odd choice. The pics show it was an excellent choice. Very nice...…...
