Guys I'm debating on rehandling an 18" Bura sirupate and was looking for some advice on wood choices. I want to keep the look very traditional and was interested in cocobolo, desert ironwood or American walnut. Of the three, walnut stock is the cheapest, but I'm worried about it splitting, even if i saturate it with pure tung oil. Looking for advice and any online resources for stock. Piece of wood needed is 2.5" square x 7" long. Next, I'm completely redoing the buttcap and am looking for an online resource for nickel-silver blanks. Keeping the bolster as is. Assembly will include the cap and diamond keeper. Any help is appreciated. Since this is my first complete takedown, I also want to avoid any pitfalls in the process. I know that laha is one tough..... to get off. thanks in advance.
