Making my own stock!! A little help

I am a 17 year old that has a construction class in highschool. I have full permission to make a rifle stock so i would really like to take the challenge. I would like to make a configuration of a A5 stock. Something like the ones Russo makes. I say one of his exotic wood stocks, looks like a cherry wood colour and really liked it and was hoping to try to make one like that.

i was wondering what kind of wood should i use. It will be placed on a remington 700 action chambered in a 7mm rem mag. I have the full equipment and helpp from my teacher who also loves to hunt and shoot so he will help me, and i always have my dads best friend who said he would make a gloss for me if wanted or even pour a glass over top.

What is your thoughts on this? what kind of wood should i use. My teacher suggest Walnut or Cherry due to being somewhat light weight, tough, and cheap. But would like an opinion. It is my last year to use the full equipment and want to take advantage.

I would like it to look like this;
