  1. Great video my friend. Very helpful. Getting ready to Tru Oil finish a couple of guitar kits

  2. Amazing job. Looks really professional. You should be so proud of that work my friend

  3. Fantastic result ! Thank you for this very friendly and informative posting. How long do you wait between coats of Tru Oil before you sand? What do you wipe the stock with after sanding? I am going to do a Mosin Nagant 91/30 just as you have done your air rifle.

  4. you look like you did a nice job, but one major floor you need to know is that you didnt raise the grain, you may get away with it on a beech stock but not on a walnut stock, and the reason why it looks darker on the wrist is because its the end grain and takes more stain at that point than anywhere else on the stock.

  5. You can try a Product called OSMO it is a blend of natural resins and oils. It is in fact used to coat wooden flooring. The advantage is that it requirs only TWO COATS to obtain a similar finish. You must only apply though on BARE WOOD. The product does not go well with other finishes. It is very hard wearing and easily repaired if the finish gets damaged.
