    Another stock building attempt

    @Maca49 gave me this bit of walnut quite a while ago and I was about to get in semi inletted for me but decided it wouldn't be the same if someone did the hard bit for me so I am doing it myself.

    I haven't completely fucked it yet which is a good thing haha





    Really wish I had a bandsaw and mill drill, would make this 1000 times easier I reckon

    It's a bit chunky for my munty little fingers Toby.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Well I stuffed it up a bit trying to use a chisel. Should have used the router instead. Hopefully there's a die the right color and I'll fill in everything with bedding stuff

    Shit, and here I was thinking that my shed was a bloody mess but you got me stuffed Toby. I just checked out a peice of walnut that I have had in the shed and I was going to use it to replace the stock on my Finnwolf but the bloody walnut is warped. Plan B coming up

    Still got heaps of wood to take off with the rasp. Had enough of it today been a fair few hours on her today. Finally got the floor pate matched up to action. I might get the bedding compound and bed everything first so all the excess and what not will come off when I shape the stock.

    I'd be tempted to hack it down a bit with a chainsaw if you don't have bandsaw/jig saw etc. Although I do most of my wood work with a chainsaw! Haha
