Any diy have experience with mail order wood?

I'm repairing some rifles and need European beech.

I don't want to order from the first random link on google who will send a block of wood still green and cracking.

Woodworkers source has some but its too thin for my needs, other reputable sites don't carry it.

What are your go to sources? Local places only had common construction lumbers.

maybe a store like woodcraft could sell you some.. or they might even be able to order it for you... but they are gonna be a tad expensive... something you might pay 4 dollars a board foot, you pay 6. a tad expensive....

Best i can say is perhaps call some carpentry specialists in your area and ask if any of their vendors/suppliers might have what you are looking for.

If so they may be able to purchase something for you (because they have a wholesale account) and you just give them the money for it, maybe buy their lunch for doing you a solid.

I'm aware. Most fancy stock blanks run $600-2500 depending on figure and color.

I'm just repairing forends and am having trouble finding 3' sections, even 2' is pushing the minimum.

I go to Woodcraft usually. They do custom cuts as well sometimes, but don't have larger blocks very often. Pricey, but they generally have what you want.

There's also a wholesaler just outside of town that I go to when I need a lot of something.

Honestly, your best bet is to open google/phone book and start making calls. See what's available near you.

How big a repair OP? I'm assuming more than could be repaired by taking some from under the buttplate, hence the 2-3' sections?

Its a sporterized carcano. Its missing from the barrelband to the bayonet lug, so I'm looking for about 6' long by 3' thick, 3' wide.


I'll check this woodcraft place out. I already tried local sources they have a few exotics, but not European beech, or any real exotic really, they cater to people building cabins really.

I don't know anything about baseball bats but the description says European beech "ash" billets. Not sure if beech or ash.

I'd say use Google, find some place selling 10/4 lumber, and go for it. I've ordered maple blanks from a couple of different places, always had good luck. I also wouldn't worry TOO much about European versus American, either.

It sounds like you're un-sporterizing it. For God's sake, why?
>>
>>903476
Been googling, finding a few places of questionable origin. I'll probably just ordera smaller one blind and see what I get before ordering the full length.


And yes I am unsporterizing it. Its a fun project, brings it back to military configuration, tells bubba to suck it, looks leagues better, and gives me valuable experience doing my hobby.
