coloured stock ..

Postby KeithS » Sat Dec 17, 2016 4:34 pm

I've been meaning to work on my TX 200 stock for quite a while,
to get work done by a professional it will cost an arm and a leg so
have decided to do it my self.
Has anyone on here had a spray can out to rejuvenate the wood work

Renovate/rejuvenate/give a lift/freshen up/to make it a one off, all the same thing :D :D

Hi Keith

I've refinished a few stocks by various methods, I've used rattle can spray lacquer a few times, I've also used BLO and Tung based oil, Not done much recently due to arthritic hands :cry:

The bottom one of these (Webley mk3) was a stock I bought for £20, It was black with muck and age, Couldn't believe the grain that came out when I started rubbing it down!! I used Boiled Linseed Oil as it's walnut rather than beech..

Image

Did these two Airwolf stocks for a gent, In return he gave me a BSA Superstar mk1 with a 4-12x56 Superscope and an immaculate boxed BSA Scorpion pistol!! :o

Image

This HW95 I redfinished with the rattle cans!! I mixed the stain up from various bits that were left in cans, It's an 'orrible colour but looks better than it was before!!

Image

Image

This was a tired old BSA Cadet Major stock that had been damaged in front of the trigger guard, It hadn't been shaped correctly and wasn't made to fit right, He asked me to have a go at it, I used the spray lacquer to finish it..

Image

The repair really needed taking out and a new piece cutting to fit better but he said to not bother..

Image

And finished, He was happy enough with it..

Hi Keith, The Cadet Major is Beech, Usually walnut is olied and beech is lacquered but beech will take oil too but lacquer is faster as oil can take up to ten coats at one coat every twenty four hours, The lacquer from a rattle can will only need to be applied twice and thew second coat can go on as soon as the last coat is touch dry (Around fifteen minutes!

It will take a week or two to fully harden though!!

By the way, The HW95 is a beech stock too that I lacquered, I mixed the colours with what I had to stain it first, I don't like the outcome though :(
