Any of you ever build your own stocks from black walnut? If so, curious to hear how it went for you since I’ve never made a gun stock from scratch. We own a parcel with a somewhat large black walnut tree on it, about 80+ feet tall. Plan to have it removed soon and want to harvest the heartwood. I’ve heard about other types of walnut being best for gun stocks, especially English and Turkish walnut, believe Bastogne is popular as well, but haven’t heard much about black walnut being desirable. Not sure if it’s any good for that purpose. I suppose if it was I’d have heard about it before. Anyway, if you have some insights please share, and thanks in advance.
