    Looks Like .................

    Walnut to me. It is a very heavy and dense wood.

    This wood was given to me at last weeks gun show and the guy didn't know what type of wood it is.
    I used a piece on this Gun Metal Bolt Action that I plan to give him at the next gun show for the wood he gave me.

    Sanded to 400X, buffed with extra fine steel wool, sealed with 4 costs of Thin CA, buffed with extra fine steel wool,
    applied 6 coats of MINWAX WBOM Polyurethane using my "Dipping Method", buffed with extra fine steel wool and polished with Huts Ultra Gloss.


    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Very nice, as always Les!

    The wood could be Rosewood, have some that looks very much like that, and it is used in bespoke gun stocks.
