finish for 513t stock



Log in to see fewer ads
I am looking for product that will give me a nice matte finish on a walnut stock. I like the look when I wipe it down with alcohol, nice color, no shine. I have used waterlox on a few others I did, but looking to try something different.

Take your STOCK ONLY, to one of the major paint stores. Sherwin Williams, Glidden, etc. Tell them what you want to do and follow their advice

If you want the natural wood to show satin lacquer would be my first choice. If you don't mind a little yellowish color cast, you can use Tru-Oil, then break the gloss to a satin . I did it on this lam stock by buffing lightly with a Mr. Clean Eraser pad.

I will try a clear lacquer that I use in my fish work. I saw the lacquer responses and thought to myself, hey you have a couple gallons of that.

I've used Min-wax satin for some time now, with very good results....but, lately I've had a couple cans that sprayed erratically, or gave varying glossiness, depending on the can.

I've since leaned toward Deft brand.

That alcohol wipe thing kinda' creeps me out, man.

Lacquer was the original finish, probably with some color mixed in. It's easy and reliable. Lacquer isn't the most durable, but most every factory gun has it.

I wipe with alcohol to clean and show any imperfections that I haven't sanded out yet. Kills any covid that may be lurking between the grain as well. I use 99%.

Satin finish...............

I have used Deft satin finish not only on gunstocks but on maple workbench tops, it is a very durable finish that is easy to use. When you have applied enough coats of Deft to obtain the desired finish I apply paste wax using 0000 steel wool as the applicator pad and buff with a micro-fiber cloth. Should get you the finish you're looking for.

The lacquer gave the look I was after. Thanks for the suggestions. Multiple coats applied with one of my airbrushes. Product was a basecoat sealer that I use when painting fish.

I have been using lacquer on some stocks. Rattle can Deft. Works ok but I have to do a lot of sanding to get a good finish. I like the final results.
