Tried my hand at making my first stock, did not have any need to just wanted to. The walnut cam from a frind of mine, he's had it stacked in a garage for about 40 yrs. It's defenetly been a learning experance, made a few mistakes along the way and learned epoxy fix'es alot of stuff, but I had fun doing it. It still needs about another 5 coats of tung oil [has 6 now], the tang area was the hardest and that's where the epoxy comes in that and the but plate. Just for fun I tried it on the gun [44mag.] befor I started finnishing, here are a few pictures I'll try to post.

Nice work, Very Nice. Have you ever considered a change in jobs. I know that was a labor of love and took time but your efforts have definitely paid off. Take care and just keep on keeping on, John.
Just keep on keeping on.
It's not what you do, it's how you do what you do, that counts.
Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skills.
Looks darn good! Every wood project I start ends up the same way, toothpicks and sawdust. DP

Nice job!....................Now for the forearm?
Treat others the way you want to be treated.
Great looking stock you made there! You just added value to your 94, and enjoyment to your ownership.
Thanks everyone,I was going to try to do the forend but not sure how I would get the mag. tube hole and barrel chanel as I dont own any tools to do it with and getting it straight would be my problem. For the stock all I had was a hacksaw, hand plainer, drawknife and LOT'S sandpaper.
Dang!!! That's very nice. I wish Remlin put stocks as nice on their guns.
Interesting and looks very good. Curious, what did you have to epoxy ?
