The hardest part in making a gunstock is mating “bedding” the barrel/action to the stock. It has to be PERFECT or the barrel will move during firing, temp./humidity changes, etc. Luckily epoxy bedding is a piece of cake. Rough out the recesses over size, cover the metal bits with some type of wax release agent, plop in a bunch of epoxy, squish the two together and scrape off the excess squeeze out. Hopefully the next day the two come apart with minimal swearing and you have a perfect mirror image inside of the stock.

I’ve never tried checkering though, it looks like it might be more difficult than all the other steps combined. It also requires some very specialized tools which I don’t have.
