I have a M1903 Springfield (made 1921) that's in great condition. However, the buttplate will not stay secure because the hole for the screw has started to strip. Anyone have any suggestions in the Houston area where I can get someone with some woodworking skill. Appreciate in advance any help anyone can give.

You could also fill the hole with wood putty, let it harden, or even use an epoxy and let it harden completely, then re-drill the hole and re-attach the butt plate.

coat a dowel of the proper diameter, abnd let dry. Redrill ytour pilot hole, and reinstall.

Same principal as the toothpick trick, just a bit more permanent.
