Figured Myrtle Rifle Stock

Myrtle is one of our specialty woods, as it is grown and harvested right here in our home state of Oregon, hand selected by us, trucked to our yard, and carefully milled in our facility. Myrtle wood is renowned throughout the Pacific Northwest for its excellent machining and finishing properties as well as its beautiful color, spicy aroma, and figure. Also known as Bay Laurel, California Olive, Pepper wood, or Spice tree, this versatile hardwood grows only in Oregon and Northernmost California. Colors range drastically even in the same log so that a range from golden yellow, green, black, brown, tan, and violet can exist. Each blank is unique, making each project a one of a kind. Burl or fiddleback is a rare quality that very few Myrtle trees possess.   Myrtle wood is great for the beginner and expert alike. Ed Weatherby's has a custom 257 with figured Tiger Myrtlewood stock. Exhibition feathercrotch with burl.Dried 5 years for perfection. Dried to %6.5. A couple incursions in lower section of butt stock should easily mill away. Incredible gunstock.
