London gunmaker John Rigby & Co. is proud to unveil its latest innovation: the Rigby Wood Cellar. This unique service offers discerning customers the opportunity to invest in walnut stock blanks, securing them for future use in bespoke gun creations.

With best walnut blanks becoming increasingly harder to source and more costly, the Rigby Wood Cellar presents an unparalleled chance for enthusiasts to get ahead of the curve. By purchasing wood blanks through this service, customers can ensure a ready supply for future projects, all while enjoying significant cost savings compared to traditional upgrade fees.

Key features of the Rigby Wood Cellar include:

  1. Secure storage: Customers can store their wood blanks in a safe, humidity and temperature controlled storage bank at Rigby, paying a small yearly fee for the service. This ensures peace of mind and easy accessibility whenever inspiration strikes.
  2. Variety of options: Customers can choose from fully dry wood blanks or opt for wet blanks at a more cost-effective rate, ideal for future or long-term projects.
  3. Custom commissions: The Rigby Wood Cellar team offers personalised assistance for customers seeking matching blanks from the same tree for sets, trios, or collections, ensuring a harmonious finish to their creations.
  4. Detailed reporting: Customers will receive yearly reports on the condition of their blanks, including humidity levels and weight, providing valuable insights for preservation and maintenance.

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

When you purchase a blank from Rigby, a portion of the proceeds goes towards replanting walnut trees, ensuring a sustainable legacy. Furthermore, no resource is wasted, as the off-cuts and dust from the manufacturing process are reprocessed at the walnut factory into wooden pellets for stoves, minimising waste and maximising efficiency.
