I ordered my tools , templates and a couple guides from Brownells a few years ago and it helped a good bit when I was playing with that stuff , it all got ruined with hurricane Katrina or I'd offer to let you try it out.
a realy nice wood stock with well cut checkering realy sets a gun appart from the rest of the crowd , I did a stock for a Dr. friend of ours on a very fine piece of AAA Claro Walnut stock he had made , it turned out great but it sure was nerve racking. I also did a misquite (sp) stock for myself that was cut from the biggest misquite tree I have ever even heard of , turned out great but that gun was also lost in the storm.
I stock to symthetics and laminats now days and don't bother checkering them ,I don't have the nerve for that
