Ok, I am going to throw my hat into the ring.

I have a few projects in front of this, One piece strikers (almost complete)
and a one piece box call and deer grunt tube (almost complete). I can re-arrange some priorities to make this happen. I'll push out one piece call and insert this one.

The starting question would be as follows:

I have a Exomag, how many different types are we looking at?
Could one stock fit all, or at least close?
What woods are we looking at? Walnut, Oak and Maple.
And the loaded question, What will the market bear price wise?

would it be finished stocks or blanks?

I would deefinatley be interested in a finished wood stock.My wood working skills are very bad LOL...It would be able to fit all excalibur models wouldnt it?(newer 2006 and on??)Price wise..?Of course the finished version would cost more but i have no idea as to how much.

Just doing some quick research on wood. Gunstock grade Walnut board runs from $35 to $100 US plus shipping depend on the finish grade. It is not cheap for sure.
Quilted maple runs in the same price range as well.

Are we still thinking this is still do able?

A finshed stock should run from $250 on the low end and go up from there based on the wood choice.

From the little I know from surfing various ads, your price does not sound too far out for a finished product. IMHO

I'd take one also.....I just google'd ''gunstock blanks'' and the price range's varied so much.Im not lookin for something fancy and that id be afraid to take into the woods...Just need one that looks good and doesnt cost a ton.$250 sound reasonable to me.

The trick here is the wood needs to be well dried before you start. Therefore a lumberyard wood will not cut it. It must be rough cut and then it must sit to dry further otherwise you will get warpage on the finished cut and that is not good at all.

I'll make an attempt on my bow and see how it goes. This will take months not weeks so please hold on. I'll keep posting to let every one know the progress.
