Stock Refinshing Q

Recommended Posts

Started taking apart my old Buck bb gun for a refinish. On the stock it has the logo and such...what is the best way not to damage this while at the same time sanding the stock and applying new oil and such?

My best advice is to check out youtube under stock refinishing and wood finishing.

I am in no way an expert on wood refinishing.

I am just relating my experience.

I was looking for information my self on refinishing the stock on my 1955 SKS and I found so many ideas on wood and stock refinishing it was almost overwhelming.

So many videos on the best way to refinish stocks and what works best that I almost wish I had not looked.

In the end I took bits of this and that.

I stripped the stock with Circa 1850 furniture stripper.

I applied 6 coats of Circa 1850 tung oil, allowing 24hrs drying between coats along with a light sanding and tack cloth wipe between each coat.

I allowed it to dry after the last coat for a couple weeks.

I am not sure that I had to wait that long but again some youtube videos said do it and someĀ  didn't even address it.

I applied one coat of minwax paste finishing wax to top it off.

As it was a laminated stock I really like the results.
