Grand daughters new B-B gun had too long of stock for her short arms.
The original stock is plastic and hollow; not practical to shorten. I had palette wood that I scrounge from the candy store(Cornwell Truck) next door.
The pictures show the results.
She did want her name “engraved” on it also.
The old coarse 1/2 round woodrasp did the initial shaping, best tool I know of for some things.
The engraving is just deep wood burning. I then torched slightly the rest for effevt.
The fininsh is just pastewax rubbed in hard. Easily fixed for kid damage.
