I just finished this target rifle stock. It’s made from English walnut and tiger maple. The design is modeled on the Remington 40X target stock and it’s inletted for a short action Savage. It’s just rough sanded to 100 grit at this stage. I’ll sand it with 180 and 220 grit before I ship it to the customer. It won’t be a finished stock, but it will have 90% of the work done. The other 10% takes 90% of the time to finish a stock… It has been rubbed down with mineral spirits to show the grain. The maple will look lots better with a little dye before finishing so the stripes will show. The cherry slab I’m using for a table might be a finished bench in a few days. I’ll post photos when it’s finished.
