  1. This is the best explanation on the Tru Oil process on YT. It was well thought out and super easy to follow. You are a great instructor.

    I never leave comments on YT and almost never even sign into my account. I signed in today just to let you know what a great job you did. I'm surprised this video only has 574 views. I'll be referencing it again in the future.

    Thanks for making this video. I also checked out your blog.

  2. You did a great job on your stock. I have a stock that I want to refinish and now thanks to you I should be all set. Thank you very much for the tutorial and for sharing with fellow firearm owners.

  3. I find that Homer Formbys tung oil does agreat job. Being left-handed myself I tried a right- handed rifle for my first rifle. After that, never again. I have a left-handed Sauer model 200 in 270. It is my favorite rifle. So do yourself a favor and sell your right-handed rifle and buy a lefty. You will find follow up shots much easier.

  4. Sorry I’m a few years late here, question what about a new stock do you sand it the same way ?

  5. Love the video! I'm assembling a kentucky long rifle kit and I'm using tru-oil. The stock comes in two pieces. After applying the first coat, one is noticeably darker. Did I do something wrong? Is it likely two different cuts of wood? If I add some stain can that help darken the lighter?

    Thanks for response!
