Maple FG



Log in to see fewer ads
OK OK like I need another project............

Here it is, straight from Tuck's workshop:

just got it so I gues not being able to go shoot somewhat paid off. stock still needs to be finished but let me tell you its already sanded very smooth. This is my first dealing with Tuck but looking at this I hope not my last.
Plans are to clearcoat the stock and everything be polished aluminum. I have a GM stainless faded-flute that will have a home in this stock. SeanM didn't know where his next mag release for me was going but he does now
As with all the other projects........I'll update as progress happens

That's one pretty piece of wood! So you're not adding any color to the finish? That'll make a sharp combination. Can't wait ot see it come along.

well Tony I hope that when I do get started on it that I'll be able to do Tuck proud. I'm sure you've seen his excellent talents. I'm not even going to try and compare just going to do a nice smooth clear coat I hope. It is a fine looking piece of wood thats for sure.

YOU SUCK!!!!

You are a very lucky man. I was really hoping to hear that he was going to be willing to sell a few of those off, as I would have gladly gotten in line for one. I asked, but he said no.

I can't wait to see how that comes out.

oh I know I got really lucky in getting this stock. I'd been asking around, dropping a hint or two. as it turned out I guess the timing was right.

Ops do you have any idea what all I have lined up? I just lucked out by getting the 76 rcvr and that lets you off the hook haha. you know I'd been wanting to get one of those for awhile now. heck I even sent a few kind worded PMs to Vincent in hopes he would get rid of his. I well understand why nobody lets them go though.
So I need to finish my 68FG so I can start and finish my 76 Liberty so I can start this maple FG.
currently working on three walnut stock with another enroute. huh....I don't need a job, I need an income. That way I can finish this small list hopefully this year haha

Ofcourse updates to the different threads will be posted as they happen

Great choice in stocks. I have the same barrel that needs a home, I just need the receiver, and pick wood type, and color of candy.

good for you JJ. Proud to be off the "suck" list haha.

jon good start with that barrel. I've used one in a build "Fauxy" and I really like them. now the Tuck has the FGs going almost any good wood FG would be possible. I've got a few walnut stocks and really wanted to get a light colored one just to mix it up abit.

Yeah, I was looking at the cherry, or maple stocks, more than walnut. I am thinking the cherry is what I want.

Yours should look great when it is complete!!!

Love the maple.

The maple stocks always catch my eye. Every now and then I log on to Gatewoods sight and lustfully stare at the one on his pics page.

You going to use poly or lacqeur ?

cherry should look really nice also. I plan on using lacqeur to finish it out. going to keep it as clear and non-yellow looking as I can.

hey just wanted ya'll to know.......I ain't complaining about the list of projects. I need the stuff to do and have it waiting on me. I get into trouble when I have nothing to do or plan for. Idle minds.........
