    Walnut stock re-finishing??

    Anyone know a professional woodworker/gunsmith that can sand back to bare wood and refinish and shotgun stock? It got went and swelled.

    I think the cracks are only in the varnish

    Cheers

    Is Gaskill still in business? He's the master apparently... I've seen his work first hand too. Very schmick.

    Von gruff on the other forum is a talented artisan and was kind enough to instruct me in stripping, sealing and oil finishing with tung oil. My jw15 no longer looks like a cheap copy at a casual glance
