  The stain is dark walnut.then 1coat of lin speed oil  then 5 coats of true oil then a good buffing and a good waxing.

 

  this wood had alot of good dark grain to it naturaly so dark was what i went with.I'm working a few stes not that are looking okay so far but they are getting a light oak stain.i'm hopeing the grain will show more detail.

 Nice job!  I think the degree of shine is just right. Not dull, not glossy.

The wood came up very nicely. I have redone one of my rifle stocks, but not with the same success. Nice one!

 I ran a custom cabinet shop for ten years. I always figured, starting from rough-sawn hardwood lumber, that when a nice dresser or something was all designed, built, fitted and sanded, that the work was about half done.

Nice job.  I have been doing alot of amateur gunsmithing over the last 2 years, learning more and more and have put together now about one half dozen or slightly more custom to semi-custom rifles, or at least is various stages.  Just finished one completely in a wooden stock with a Mauser action in a .243 Winchester.  Trying to get pics., actually did get some during a boring period in the tree stand while bear hunting this weekend, going for a head shot, shoots one quarter inch groups with hand loads at 100 yards.  Just curious, where did you get the wood from and how much sanding was required.  The stocks I get require large amounts of sanding and contouring as they are rough hewn, despite having a good figure?

Dolphin,

 

Right now the 20 or so pairs of stocks Iím working on were in a flood and Iím redoing the entire guns. So the stocks are in fair shape. They do get allot of sanding. The steps I use is as follows.

 

After I take the gun apart,

 

1) I will strip all finish off with a good lacquer thinner or something like that. Witch this might take 4 or 5 times to get it all off.

 

2) I will Wipe the stocks off with mineral spirits make sure of no light spots of missed old finish.

 

3) I will put the butt plate back on and (hand) sand lightly with 200 or so paper to get the wood to new status

 

 4) I will take some 450 and 600 sand paper and make it smooth with the butt plate still on. After it is very very smooth      I will take 0000 steel wool and buff the wood

 

5) I will repeat step 2 and 3 and 4 if not to my liking and I will let it dry in 70% for about 3 days I want the wood to look dull

 

6) Look at the grain of the wood to see what finish would make the wood stand out and show up better.

 

7) Take a old rag and wipe the wood down heavily with stain and let sit about 2 minutes and wipe smooth. I will hang the stock for 2 days to make sure it dries very well

 

8) After it dries I will take 0000 steel wool and buff all the stock to take the sheen off.

 

9) I will take tru oil or lin speed and rub into the wood very very very good with finger tips. I will hang the stocks to dry for a day or 2. it shouldnít feel sticky to the touch

 

10) I will take 0000 and buff the stocks again and rub down with the oil of choice, and hang again  I do this step about 5 times.

 

11) I then take some very light wood buffing compound and buff it 2 times very good. The shine will dull from this step

 

12) I then take some wood wax and wax the wood 2 or 3 times and make sure you put wax on every piece of the stock to protect it.

 

13) Then I take the newly finished stocks and a tooth pick or something with a small edge and get the wax build up out of all the little cracks and other places it might build up.

 

I think this is just about all the steps I take on redoing stocks. Iím probably taking more step than most people but I have never had one that the owner didnít like.

 

 

 

 As for new stocks.  There is a wood worker we get ours from. He dose a good job. There is a lot of sanding evolved but the shape in mainly there I just knock the edges off so to speak. He is a local guy in Ga  We give him a picture and some measurements and he take it form there and dose what we need.

 

If I can help with anything just let me know.

That is very similar to my approach, but since I am working with raw wood there are some differences.  I use more sandpaper in the process and because the grades of wood that I have access to, or should I say, can really afford, have a fair amount of pores, I must create a sludgy with the truoil to fill them in, after the first coat of finish, being careful not to create to much and wipe the excess off.  I finished a Baikal shotgun for myself with truoil and did some minor metal work and it came out looking great.  My future son in law thought it was a 1500 dollar shotgun.  Good work.  Please post some more pics. and I will try to do the same.
