was the wood of choice for the Springfield Armory in production of stocks for the M1 Garland rifle. The rifle was in issue for the US Army up through the early 1960s. Here are some notes from the Springfield Arsenal and the National Park Service about the production of those stocks and shows some of the machine tools used in that fabrication.

Happy birthday wishes to the United States. Enjoy the day safely and reflect on the heritage we have.
