Reply To: I'm looking for some stock finishing advise.
Nice job on the stock Tom ! Brought out the details in the wood beautifully. I’m like some of the other guys in that I like TruOil but it’s a little thick out of the bottle . On most of my stocks I start at about 1/3 truoil to 2/3 mineral spirits until the wood stops soaking it up and gradually go heavier ratio to solid truoil . Here in East Tx its very humid so thinning it can take a long time for a stock to cure but I like the finished look.
Yours turned out great !
