Walnut wood has been the timber of choice for gun makers, furniture makers, carvers and woodturners for centuries. It remains one of the most popular choices for rifle and shotgun stocks, and

is generally considered to be the premium wood for gun stocks, due to its resilience to compression along the grain. The grain figure exposed when a crotch (fork) in a walnut log is cut in the plane of its one entering branch and two exiting branches is attractive and sought after as this piece shows.
