2 for the road

Stock finishing has taken a backseat to "real-life" bill-paying-type" work but I have been able to crack into the last of the Fred's stocks over the last couple of weeks. These 2 are going out to forum members who requested something special, and these 2 fit the bill. I sure have enjoyed doing this over the years.



















Thanks from XXIV Corps, RDS, m14brian and 9 others

Three things all coming together-
The lines and curves of the M14 stock
Nature's beauty
You're craftsmanship

Cheers

Beautiful work as always! I never get tired of seeing BEAUTIFUL figures! Wood stocks that is!

Do you know the manufacturer of these beautiful stocks?

These are beautiful. Do you share your refinishing process? I looked through your post history, but didn't see any details. I assume a lot of the character in these is based on the type of wood? I'm going to attempt to refinish a wood stock on my own and any direction you could give would be great. I'd like to achieve a nice striping like this.

Thanks from Doug Carlton

I have posted many "how-to" threads over the years, start with this one:

Teak Oil Experiment

The real star is the wood itself. You cannot add something that is not there before you start.
