Yama Wood Stocks




I may not have spelled the wood correctly, but I have a friend who made a stock for a rifle in the early 60s out of Yama wood. It was very light, but hard and he had it on a .300 Wby. It is a Japanese wood.

He wants another stock out of that wood, but has been unable to find a source.

Does anyone here have any knowledge of that wood, and a source to obtain it? A semi-inlet stock would be the ideal.
Thanks.

Regards,
Jerry

I believe Yama is more commonly known as Japanese Maple. Try a Google search.
