A while back I refinished the stock on my Sako 75. My camera is back (repaired from Cannon) so here are a few for your viewing enjoyment. O.K. Mark, it's no longer a worthless thread! LOL

I was pleasantly surprised. It's just a hunter model with grade I wood, but it looks more gooder now...IMO. BTW, couldn't resist the Crown bags...just another vice. LOL. Anyway, thanks for the comments. Toodles.

Nice job Ric, I can certainly appreciate the time and effort it takes for such a project as I am in the middle of refinishing a stock from my Ruger 77 - a true labor of love, NICE JOB!

Brandon said my .458 Win Mag would look better than that...

 
All kidding aside, that is a slick finish.  Great job.

Smile Great pics, great job! - especially near the checkering
 
I use Laurel Mtn, Permalyn sealer & finish from Brownells on my rifles with good or better wood.
 
On the laminated ones that I think of being like plywood I sand them down with 100 grit in my DeWalt power sander and then finish with 6-8 coats (lightly hand sanding between coats then brushed on with a foam rubber brush) of water base exterior polyurethane. The polyu takes about 30 - 45 minutes between each coat so a stock can be finished in one night. The finish is what you would expect if you take care to remove runs and is extremely durable. Great for sweaty hands, sand, water, heat, dirt and whatever.

Thanks all. It was a tough job to be sure. That epoxy based stain finish used at the factory was a bi*#@ to get off. I ended up using a product I got from Brownells called Certistrip. With a lot of "elbow grease" and steel wool dipped in the Certistrip, I finally got it down to the wood. I used about a dozen old toothbrushes (dipped in the Certistrip) to clean out the checkering. Then came sanding all the way down to 800 grit. The finish was Tru Oil and I applied four coats. In-between coats, I used 0000 steel wool. I allowed 3-4 days dry time  and ran a magnet over to collect any fine metal shavings from the steel wool polishing. After the final coat of Tru Oil, I applied some wax and there she was. The worst part was that it hurt my hands badly (I have osteo-arthritis there) and took about a week to recover. LOL. It turned out well and I had some Tru Oil left, so I also did my 1885 Low Wall. It had real plain jane wood but looks better now. Guess I never learn! LOL.
