Wood Blanks

If you have a gun you would like to upgrade to top quality wood, then we have some great pieces here. Note that DeHaan Shotguns does not have the ability to carve or finish a gunstock in our shop. We are only selling the blanks. There are good stockers all around the country and they can carve, checker, and finish these blanks for your gun.

Circassian Walnut

The distinguishing characteristic of Circassian walnut is its beautiful colors. Combine this with gorgeous figure and outstanding density and you have what is recognized by experts as the finest stock material in the world. These superior quality blanks are imported from 200+ year old trees harvested in eastern Turkey and neighboring countries. Unless otherwise noted, these blanks have been naturally air-dried for at least 4 years to a moisture content of 10-12% so they are extremely stable and ready to work. All the blanks feature great figure and grain: contrasting color and heavy black lines, feathered crotch, and/or exceptional fiddleback.

All blanks are 100% guaranteed. We understand that each blank has its own unique "life" that must be seen and felt before a piece can be judged acceptable. It is very difficult to capture this in a picture. Therefore, if you are not satisfied with any blank you order from us, you can promptly return it for a full refund, less shipping. If during shaping or carving you discover an internal flaw, we will replace it.

Please note that the picture quality varies due to lighting and the wood piece. Also, some pieces are photographed wet to show what the finished piece would look like, while others are shown dry to reduce glare. In every case, the blank looks much better in hand than the pictures can show.

Shotgun Stock Blanks

All blanks come with a butt stock piece and a forearm piece. The forearm pieces are not shown, but are matching in color, figure, grain, etc. Unless otherwise noted, the blanks are generous in size with nominal dimensions for the butt stock of 48 cm long, 17 cm at butt, and 6.25 cm at front. Forearms are 6.25 cm by 32 cm. Both pieces are 6.0 cm thick. Shipping cost is by weight, which depends on individual blank densities. More blanks will be added periodically as new inventory arrives.

Due to a special opportunity, we are offering the first four beautiful blanks at an unbeatable price. These blanks have excellent figure and color, and are discounted steeply to sell quick.
