    I really like it! The blonde wood contrasts nicely with blued steel. It's got way too much grain to be birch, though.

    It's actually pretty damn good looking birch, and this stuff is getting close to maple, in appearance.

    Well done, Lever Man....


    (btw, your lumber has a nice enough grain pattern to it that you could have also gone with a mahogany red/cherry stain and end up with something that would make even us older wood workers scratch our heads over for a minute or two.... )

    Lookin good. Birch can be a very hard wood to work with, but done right it can look very amazing for a simple piece of wood. I really like what you've done with your stock there. Might strip the stocks on my 336 and see if I can get them blonde like that. They're walnut but I might be able to find a stain.

    Here's a 'nuther idea that you might like a bit better---remove your walnut stocks and use them as patterns to make some out of birch. 'Cuz in 4 decades of wood working I've yet to see walnut successfully 'blonde-i-nized'....

    Not a bad idea... or I could find some birch stocks already done. :P
