    Would hate to think what birds eye maple costs.

    Beware of iron wood. James Mitchell did one some years ago. Once he started oiling it it stank to high heaven. His only solution was to burn it. Maybe get hold of a small piece and cut into squares and try various finishes before proceeding with a stock.

    Just need to get to Rarewoods for some dark wood, hope I can afford it.



    I loved the stock that was posted earlier this week, so here is the start of my version.
    Obviously my hand and eye coordination is not as good as a cnc machine.
    Buggar!
    Now I want this one too!!

    My Airvolution will really look nice in this........

    With every new stock your technique is getting more refined, this one should be a real looker when finished.
    I would suggest Woodoc, then just mix in some stain with the Woodoc when you want to change colour.
    Works well and doesn't have all those negative side effects.
    You could also stain and then use Woodoc/Danish oil over it.

    I love the experience age brings to one

    This will definitley help when I do some caring, will test this stain mix on my sons rifle, carving of the eagle.
    If I do not have an option of using original wood to add to the stock, staining is my second option.
    I have tried oiling previous stocks and even the Woodoc, which I am using at the moment, gives a dull finish.
    Do you guy have any other ideas for me to play around with.

    I have a boekenhout stock thats very dull with the woodoc applied to it.
    Hope someone has experience with this, I would really like to fix it to bring the grain to life.

    Do a 1200 grit wet sand down to the wood. Wipe off with damp cloth until the cloth comes off clean. Wipe thoroughly with a dry cloth. Leave stock overnight to dry. Apply three to four coats of Woodoc 10 as per instructions on the tin. You should end up with a satin sheen.

    Thanks Uncle A
    Will do that as soon as I have some time.

    If I may another question, will a buffer on a drill make any diffrence or what effect will this have to the finish when all is done.
    I have no experience with finishing and would like to gather all information possible.

    Shouldn't be necessary. Use 0000 graded steel wool between coats. Do not use Woodoc steel wool as recommended on the tin. It is ungraded and as useful as the scouring stuff you buy at supermarkets. It is sad that they do not supply a decent steel wool to go with their excellent products. Only an accountant can make that type of decision.

    Yip

    Have you applied the oil/ furniture wax yet?
    If you have 2000 grit sandpaper with that wax as lube works well, then apply with
    0000 steel wool.
    If not, do above with Woodoc and then repeat with wax.
    The more you rub the better the finish.

    To do a new stock that really shines.
    Mix Danish Oil 50/50 with white spirit, not Turps, white spirit.

    sand down to fine sandpaper, 1000 grit or more.
    Apply with brush liberally to stock, first sanding it smooth, every night after work
    for a week, let hang in the garage till the following weekend
    when you have time again.
    Now repeat with unthinned Danish oil, two or three coates are enough.
    Remember to sand smooth after each treatment.

    After last coat, use wet/dry sandpaper with danish oil as lube to sand down.
    Like colour sanding a car.....
    Remember to regularly wipe of gunk that forms.
    Work your way from 1000grit to 2000grit and then steel wool.

    Deepest richest shine you ever saw.
    Final finish needs to stand for at least a week to harden properly.

    Then once a moth apply Danish Oil with steel wool to maintain.
    Did a BAM B-26 stock like that, cheapie chinese "hardwood"
    Looked like a R2000 stock after that!

    Excellent explination Kuberboef

    Did some sanding instead of packing to move, Wife obiously is not happy.
    Neighbours are not happy either, got hold of a piece of sleeper, think its Jara wood, planed it to see what it looks like, unfortunatly full of cracks.
    Has anyone worked with Jara, should I try and do something with it or just dump it.

    Need to get some Danish oil, White spirits & sand paper, only have up to 1200grit, O' almost forgot the steel wool.

    Nice work there Howardv, for me the pistol grip seems weird, suppose thats the way of FT stocks, but should fit the hand nicely.

    Cheers

    Gebruik enige hout wat goed is vir draaiwerk of selfs meranti, jakaranda, populier of kiaat.
    As jy klaar afgewerk het, sit sanding sealer op met 'n sagte lap(4 tot 5 lae) en werk af met die groen sintetiese potskuurder of skoon staal wol.
    Dit gee 'n fantastiese satynafwerking.
    Jy kan daarna enige vernis of 2k gebruik
    sanding sealer vul alle klein ongelykheid op sonder moeite
