That's a 90%+ tiger stripe birch, excellent from Treeline, de-greased with Purple Power, and wet sanded with my home made tung oil stain.

Thanks. Randy at Treeline is great to deal with. The stock had a small crack that showed up after degreasing, and he made a price adjustment that made me happy. I didn't want to give up the stock because of the looks. The crack was shallow and short. I filled it with applewood sawdust, and dripped thin CA in a few times until the crack was full. Made one mistake. The crack was caused by impact, and I had marked the dent with chalk for steaming. When I noticed the crack, I decided not to steam the dent but didn't get all the chalk off. Now there is a small white dot that is encased in CA. It's a beauty mark.
