My thoughts on shaping the inner radius: rough it out with a gouging chisel, shape with sanding drum on drill press, then final fit/finish with dowel wrapped in sand paper (not sure if the stock is a constant radius).  My Dad's got a well outfitted wood shop, sounds like a project we could do when I'm up in the Great White North this summer.  We can use the cheek piece off his real No. 4(T) as a pattern.  I'll post some pics when I get this done.

Trust me. I bought a cheek piece from Brownells about 6 months ago for a No4 Mk1. Walnut. Got it. Rocked like AC-DC when I tried it on the stock. 4 hours later with a dowel and sandpaper, icgot it toxfit. The one I got from England needed 20 minutes of tuning with sandpaper, although 2x the price.
