    Rifle stock

    Been needing one for a while because the butt pad has fallen to pieces on the plastic stock and after seeing all these mean stocks on here, it was the motivation to put my a into g. Pretty sure I'm going to fuck it up along the way and it'll turn out to be fire wood for the fire place we don't have but here's hoping it ends up working.

    Copied off a stock I had laying in the shed. Ramline for Ruger .308/.243/22-250

    rough outline of the butt

    This is it at the moment, gave it a quick sand to check out the grain. Gonna be a wee while to sand it properly by the cheek rest I think.

    The stain wouldn't go through it then it'd be the light colour wouldn't it?

    Try and find a Shellac based sealer Toby. That is what traditional Knotting solution is.
    Keep us posted, and good on you for giving it a go.

    Stain the stock to get the colour you want before sealing the knot

    Yeah that's what I was thinking. Dark walnut stain should go well.

    I shaped it a bit more looks nicer now. Would do you guys think it would look like if I put about 1cm of jarra on the butt before the butt? I'm going to put some for the grip cap once it's shaped better its still rather fat

    Cleaning the bench, you noticed? hahaha yeah nah I don't think it's a talent just shows what bordem and sweat with a little blood brings to the table I reckon.

    Going well there Toby, good effort.
