George makes a lovely stock in various styles but as his age has gone up so has his price lol. Still going, havent been to his new location. I also took the time to visit Vardy and select timber, worth the effort and price saving.

I have an excel spreadsheet of stock makers with numbers if your interested but ph numbers may have change.

Yep...interested..!!...ill pm my email...

His email response didn't exactly fill me with confidence...

I once enquired about a stock with him...
Emsil & 2 calls, finally got a reply a few weeks down the track--ssid he would get back to me...
A year later i got a call saying he had what i was enquiring about.
Not bitching...just saying how my experience played out...

His description of the unfinished stocks left a lot to be desired...and it seems way too much effort to have to basically do the inletting job for him,especially at his price point....
