I found this piece of wood a couple years ago while splitting firewood, I thought I can’t burn this one. So I thought I’d try my hand on making a stock. Not bad I may do this again. Stock is worth more than the gun.

if the stark white (ok not exactly white) doesn’t hurt your eyes, the tiger stripes surely will. Beautiful stock

Beautiful work! I have to complement you- saved a good piece of wood from the ash pile and the stock itself. I have made a couple of stocks from 90% finished stocks. Still, it’s a challenge. I can imagine the patience and crafting for a stock made from a piece of wood. What finish did you use! Makes the grain stand out!

Very nice!

Careful on shooting that old 12! Do not use High velocity ammo!

You can make a stock for the 1929 12 gauge that is in out gun safe! Has NOT been fired in over 25 years.

Does not look 1/10 as nice as yours!

Please forgive me I’m new at LJ and do not know how to message individuals. Yes it’s tiger striped maple with a strip of Purple Heart on the butt and the end is tiger striped maple running in the opposite direction. The finish is just clear gloss lacquer. (ralbuck) it’s a 16 gauge and I can’t fire it until I make a new firing pin. It will definitely be low brass.
Thank you all.

Have your say...
