Quick and dirty:  Woodcraft lists an outlet in Phoenix

They have Walnut veneer.  Can be cut with steel straight edge and a sharp knife.

There are hardwood stores in Phoenix - if you have the tools to handle dimensional stock.


Walnut can be a beautiful wood for furniture or gun stocks.  It is relatively hard, tight, holds an edge.

It has one bothersome characteristic - it has open pores.  Not the best look when scaled down.

A tight grained closed pore species can be used and made to match Walnut by using an aqueous or alcohol aniline dye of the desired color.  Not a stain - which is a surface semi transparent paint - a peritrating dye.
