Reply To: I'm looking for some stock finishing advise.
Tominco. I use my own oil, mixed from 50% benar, 25% raw linolje and 25% am.terpentine, but I am sure true oil will do fine. I use very fine sanding paper for the last finish, up to 2000, and after that I use steel wool (000) and work the oil into the wood. Several layers. Be patient about this.
This is for my knife shafts, but the same goes for my gun stocks.
Here you have some before/after pictures.
