    Here's a link that might help. they don't have a solid pink laminate, but they have blanks with pink in them.
    Laminated Colors
    You may also want to check with Rutland Plywood, they build a lot of laminate blanks.

    i know that you can buy an unfinished stock and use RIT dye on it.
    then coat with whatever finish you like,glossy etc.

    Boyds has had pink (pink and black?) laminated stocks from time to time. They also sell blanks. You might call them.

    Looks a little like some sort of pakkawood, maybe pakkawood that was bleached the way woodworkers treat the wood for French Provincial furniture?

    Pink synthetic stock

    Shawn. I recently purchased a youth model savage and had the synthetic stock painted pink at a body shop. It looks awesome! just another option if you can't come up with a laminated stock.

    Dang...woodworkers already know where to get the stuff ;)

    Ok, here's whatcha do...get a unfinished BIRCH stock / blank...or other light wood like Parawood (White Mahogany).

    Go get some pink stain from your local unfinished furniture store. (Wood You or other)


    NEXT!
