    Default dummy's guide to a super smooth walnut stock........

    this is what i did, and it came out quite nicely......

    prep as usual.......

    finger application of tru oil, thin coat, "press" into the wood.
    let dry over night.
    wet sand with w&d 400 and danish oil - follow the grain.
    let dry for 1-2 hrs, wipe off excess cross-grain.

    repeat 2-3 times, to build up layers ie. fill up all the divots/holes to a smooth surface. are they open grains? pores? what are they?

    finish off with a few coats of danish oil
    light buff with fine wirewool for a matt finish.

    Seen a stock that has the last few coats of "English oil" sprayed on, it looks like a mirror. The guy first did all the sanding and rubbed a few coats on by hand. Got fed up and used the spraygun for the next few coats. At the end of the day if your preperation is good the end product will be good.

    perhaps it's the same as the 'old london' oil, linseed based, that gives that o so nice fancy over/under 'best london' finish.

    tru oil is available as a spray........

    agree with lewis, the outcome can only be as good as the preperation

    While on the subject of oils, whats the difference between cooked and raw linseed oil? What I mean is what difference does it make to the wood? Which one is best to use?

    I'm not sure of the type of oil that was used hence the english speaking oil.
    Neal - Beach has a fine grain, Walnut has a larger grain/lines.
