That's super nice.

I need the exact same thing for my all NOS SA marked parts matching build I will eventually do, when I get a stock like that!

These two were the first presentation grades I have bought from Fred's in at least 10 years. Before that I used only them or his 100% tigered walnut for my builds. Jack has certainly provided many wonderful stocks over the years.
This is one of the 100% tigered walnut with a few coats of BLO and topped off with Bowling alley wax.

Didn't he name his stock business "Fred's" after his dog ?
I bought quite a few stocks soon after he opened. I was always pleased what he set me.
