    Homemade 1894 stock

    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.

    Looks darn good! Every wood project I start ends up the same way, toothpicks and sawdust. DP

    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.
