blanks 1&3 still up for sale. I just learned from the originally purchaser that blank 3 is over 30 years old, purchased in London from Rigbys in the 80's, good stuff.

The grain runs diagonally, by turning your pattern in the blank you can often get a nearly slab sawn cut. It depends on the degree of angle in the grain as well as the size of your pattern and blank. Suitable for most shotgun or mid-bore rifles but not for heavy recoiling guns such as dangerous game rifles.

Great explanation. I have worked with a quarter sawn blank and what I assume is a slab sawn blank beacause of the way the grain ended up in either side of the stock.
