This is my first stock project still in progress. Will post more pics when completed. I think I’m going to use try-oil as a finish. Any suggestions would be great.

Was it difficult to inlet the stock to the action? Looks really great even if the pictures are down side up.

yeah, I second the question that pjones asked…..

how do you reconcile the crazy different profiles..3d profiles of the action in that, or any other rifle?

Pjones yes that was the most difficult part of the project. Drilling and cutting and chiseling the notch out. From what I’ve read best way is to use a lathe to get the holes drilled. I think next time I will try to borrow a lathe. I was fortunate to have a large slab of wood. And unfortunate that I needed most of it.

I have used Tru-Oil on gunstocks and reel seats. Works great. Make sure it is completely dry between coats and follow directions to the letter. Inletting is something you can’t do in a hurry. Nice job!

Nice job. You going to fit a Butt plate or just shape it?
