    Default New Experiment

    Well when i picked up Walnut Stock for my New SUpersport i bought it home and freaking thing fell 10 feet three dings i was crushed.

    Well trip to Homedepot and picked up industrial grade gel stripper. Stripped and BOOOOMm nothing on stock just the varnish was cracked or dinged.

    Then my brain started thinking lol yeah sometimes it does that.

    What do you think











    might try them on metal too next and Lasered Derby is coming soon too. Just dunno how it will react to chrome. Got this deep in wood will see how it works on Aluminium.

    Holly! That is smoked hot! Good thinking! You can customize it a whole bunch, can you put a decorative small metal inlay as well? Don’t you have those stamps from making the m109r lather pouch. Can those stamps press into the wood as well? Then rub in a darker stain? Ya you’ve got it my friend, let that imagination go wild! You might even be on a roll with a safari theme too? What fun you are having; keep us posted. I love seeing talent at work! Thank you

    Awe, what about scratching/cutting it in using exact-o-blade, then the stain would pick it up, it looks like you did a burn sketch?

    I have my “cougar defender”, my dads Remington that I want to use when I go winter camping on the quad. It has that same etch grip which I just love!

    It has a rough feel from the rest of the smooth wood,


    What will you be using on your etched grippy part of the wood?

    That’s fantastic! Keep us posted.
    I didn’t know what that grip was called, still can’t figure out how they got that diamond grip onto the wood? Or is that an inlay?

    tHanks Bro still trying to put the fully completed images but cant upload. Got the dyes out and just need to find time to start putting them its going to be a high patience job. For top coat i was gonna change from Polyurethane to Tru oil but i think iam going to stick with Poly or Varethane. I put a reflective sticker on my SKS and coated on top with Polyurethane didnt have dyes or i would have gone either Green or Blue on that but left it plain and grain popped out great

    Gorgeous work mate! I'd love to see it finished off with a traditional oil finish and no gloss....

    Haha, good on you! To each their own I say. Me? I'm very much old-school, traditionalist, or even minimalist in many cases (eg. the short, matte black turn-out pipes on my bike). Mind you, chrome sure does look good on the nine...

    Reflective coating is simply visible when light shines upon it otherwise it be nice and glossy clear.

    Well personally I like the more traditional wood stock finishes and believe SOME things cannot be improved upon! I think the Coloring is over the top and would have been more appealing to me if you would have stopped after the addition of the carved/burned in art but with that said the work itself is VERY Clean and looks to have been done by a Professional who has done this many times in his career. You my friend have some Awesomly creative artistic skills and you do what Suits your desires and I Commend you for that, Nice work so keep pushing that creative envelope regardless of what others like me may think.

    lol thanks Latin

    The bloody rear stock had a fine hairline crack so i had to strip the damn colour off and i redid the design havent got to dying it again yet. It changed from the original colour i had in mind i forgot to analyze that walnut is darker wood had it been maple the colour would have poped lot more but it turned out sweet the colour doesnt do justice in pics Now i am waiting for summer to really finish this baby infact my brand new benelli is sitting unused at my friends place as i want to get it done before i take it to range.








    i love the walnut colour too and after this incident if i redo ill stay stock with varnish but now i have a front stock in same colour so going to go with that again sanding that is pain in back lol.



    This was just another experiment i did with vinegar, salt and 12 volt battery still have to sand it to clean.





    I loose interest real fast once i make what i want too then it sits
    Just working on two diff designs for my SKS stock for each side of stock. will take a bit of time but will be sick once i am done that will mostly likely be orange or neon green dye.
    long ways to go befor ei finalize just rough sketch in progress


    thats a laminate light colour stock so it will really pop the stock and colour will see how it goes. any dark colour wood is basically not worth going with lighter shade as wood reacts differently
