    Help needed ... how to make your own stock ...

    Morning all,

    So i was thinking i might give this a nudge for the hell of it..

    I have next to no wood working skills and minimal tools ... but once i know what I need ill go and raid the old mans shed and see what I can find..

    Thinking of starting out on something small and easy (norinco .22) -- some of you might have seen my restoration of the less than average factory stock about 4-5 months ago..

    Does anyone have a good link to a 'how to guide' or similar to get me started ?

    Cheers

    Marty

    I built a stock for my toz 17-01 (my avatar and bigger pic on page 45 on the "What little pestys did you bowl over...."thread. I used pine ply with epoxy resin coating. The ply is easy to work, I filled holes with car bog.

    Seems pretty sturdy, havent put any dents in it yet.

    Good learning exercise anyway.

    Im down in Wellington, Tips would be fantastic... where to start would be a good one hahaha.

    I found some video's on youtube that did help.. Ill start by trying to find some resnoble timber.. need to find someone local as i would need a kilm apparently to make sure its 100% dry..

    If i cant find someone to fire it for me do i have any other options to dry it?

    ill post pics as i go, would imagine it will take some time as i have almost no clue on what i am doing..

    Thus far as per my youtube video learning i need to find a nice bit of wood and get it kilm dried...

    then ill sketch out the shape of the existing stock and start sketching out the new bits that i want to add and or remove.

    I am quite happy with the process i have seen so far but i am not looking forward to the inletting... could be the critical point where i fuck the whole thing up if i get it wrong hahah..

    this weekends mission is to find some useable timber

    if you want real wood (not ply), then have a look at Moxon Timbers in Seaview

    if you need help with a bandsaw for initial shape, give me a shout

    You could just hog it out roughly and fill with bedding compound
