One of my uncles picked up the partially burned blanks after a fire at a
gunstock plant. He used them to floor several rooms at his house.

I recently saw a picture of some guys loading Walnut logs into a CB&Q stock
car. They weren't very long, maybe about 4'; but they appeared to be about
18" in diameter, so I am sure it was no real easy task. The caption said
the logs were headed for a gun manufacturer to be used in making stocks. In
a way, I guess, it was the intended use of a "stock" car.
