At Rigby, we understand that Best guns are built on a foundation of quality materials and fine craftsmanship. With this in mind, we are proud to introduce our latest service, the Rigby Wood Cellar, which is designed to offer discerning customers the opportunity to invest in premium walnut stock blanks for future bespoke gun creations.

The Rigby Wood Cellar is a specialised service that allows customers to hand select and secure premium walnut stock blanks at current market rates. The blanks are then stored in a secure, controlled environment at Rigby, ensuring they remain in optimal condition until they are ready to be used.

Why invest in walnut stock blanks?

Quality walnut stock blanks are becoming increasingly difficult to source and more costly. This trend poses a significant challenge for enthusiasts and collectors who value the unmatched beauty of walnut for their custom builds. The Rigby Wood Cellar addresses this challenge head-on, providing an opportunity to secure top-tier walnut blanks at today’s prices, while enjoying significant cost savings compared to traditional upgrade fees, with the blanks ready for whenever inspiration strikes.

Secure storage and peace of mind

When you invest in a walnut blank through the Rigby Wood Cellar, you can rest assured that walnut will remain safe and secure. Our secure storage facilities are humidity and temperature controlled, ensuring your wood blanks remain in optimal condition until you’re ready to use them. For a small yearly fee, your investment is protected and easily accessible for whenever you’re ready to start your next build.

We offer a variety of options to suit your specific requirements. Choose from fully dry wood blanks, ready for immediate use, or opt for more cost-effective wet blanks, ideal for future or long-term projects. Our team of experts are also available to assist in selecting matching blanks from the same trees, perfect for creating sets, trios, or collections.

To ensure the longevity and quality of your investment, we provide annual reports detailing the condition of your blanks, including humidity levels and weight. These insights are invaluable for maintaining the integrity of your walnut blanks, allowing you to make informed decisions about their care and use.

Sustainable legacy

At Rigby, we believe in the importance of sustainability. When you purchase a walnut blank from the Rigby Wood Cellar, a portion of the proceeds goes towards replanting walnut trees, ensuring a sustainable future for this precious resource. Additionally, waste is minimised as the off-cuts and dust from the manufacturing process are repurposed at the walnut factory into wooden pellets for stoves, for top efficiency and environmental responsibility.

Martin Levis, Rigby’s head stock maker, emphasises the exceptional quality of our walnut blanks. “Choosing your walnut stock blanks from Rigby means investing in quality that lasts. Each blank is thoroughly inspected by our team. At Rigby, we understand the value of craftsmanship passed down through generations, and with our finest walnut blanks, you’re not just purchasing a stock—it’s a legacy in the making.”
