Im toying with the idea of having a bash at making a stock. Now i have never really had a go at anything like this before my dad has quite a few tools that will probably do for the job but whats the cheapest wood to use and where can i get it from and any tips on making a stock with the essential tools needed so i can check if i have them avaliable. im fairly DIY capable ish so hopefully it will turn out looking like a stock at least but its the inletting that i think i will have the most problem with.
Try laminating pieces of 18mm ply together until you reach the required thickness, v cheap and surprisingly effective
try a lump of pine for your first attempts

the first thing to do, in my oppinion is the inletting,pointless doing anything else to you get that right, you can do that with a router, or better still a milling machine far more controlable, you can do inletting with hand tools the first stocks we made where done with a plough plane and chisels, hard work though.
might aswell use hardwood to practice on, beech, cheap american walnut,ect, cuts better than softwood, you could try glueing 3 or 4 pieces of 3/4 ply together, looks quite effective and is cheap, you also get nice flat sides so you router follows straight
You can do a lot with plywood, here is one of mine:
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing
thanks for the help lads i think i will go for the pine option and give it a go will keep you up to date with the project
