    Joel,
    There are gunsmiths and there are gunsmiths who are craftsman. You are definately a craftsman. Another beautiful rifle. The bubinga wood is eye catching for sure. I am tagging along to see the finished product knowing it will be worth it.

    Thanks guys....

    There are many different sub-species of Ironwood, but most people refer to the most common being Desert Ironwood which is actually harder than Bubinga on the Janka Scale. Ironwood is extremely difficult to work with, and dulls carbide cutters quickly. It has a tendency to become brittle due to it's extreme hardness. I made a stock out of it for a member here years ago, but just never took a liking to it. It's commonly used for knife scales, as it takes a high polish after sanding.

    Dan sounded very excited about getting started with the project. I told how nice the stock you did for one of my customers in Texas.I too would love see your work.

    We haven't finalized the details yet. I'm currently building a high end stock with all the bells and whistles for his partner, Harold Fredd. I've slowed down the stock building considerably, and have focused on building the top shelf stuff which takes an enormous amount of time.
