I knocked down teh shine with 0000 steel wool and buffed with a cloth for a more satin finish.

Hey Mals, good work! That old stock was majorly boring and you gave it life!

Came in late on this one, but just in time actually as I have a handfull of rifles whose stocks need attention.
Two quick questions.
A) With all this hand rubbing, are you gloved up with latex or nitrile? or just bare hands for better feel?
B) At my locale the climate varies in the extreme from parched dry to driving rain and snow. Dang hot 110 deg.f to dang cold -20 deg.f . How's it holding up?
Does it seal up the wood pretty good?

tnx bob.

Thanks 9 Fingers, I am very happy with it.
Bob just go at it bare handed, the heat from your hands and the friction speeds up the process. I believe this will seal the stock very well, with 5 coats on mine I do not see humidity or lack of it being a big issue.
Chris that lumber looks outstanding. Post pics when it's attached to the iron.

You're very welcome.

I'm 100% sold on this method and I'm glad others are having the same experience.

I keep repeating myself but because this process dries so rapidly it's not that big a deal for multiple coats and almost zero sanding to speak of.

Humidity isn't even a factor for drying times anymore.

Have fun!

I have finished stocks with Pure tung oil....it takes at least a week between coats to CURE (not dry) the way of the past master craftsmen and.....arrow, modified tung, BLO linspeed....rattle cans

I read this STORY and laughed and thought WOW.......this is pure snake oil...YEP PURE SNAKE OIL...


Well I had a stock with tru oil finish that I wasn't quite happy with the last coat....SO I knocked it down put this lame armor all on it and rubbed a coat of tru over it...

YEP PURE SNAKE OIL.....and I will buy a whole case...

Very impressed with this method, the speed is just a nice side benefit but the quality was surprising....I feel foolish for doubting.....I'm going to do another coat when I get home tomorrow and will post some pics...

Thank you

Bill

Some one asked where I got the 1906 stock, I bought an 06 and an 1890 stock from a guy on Ebay, Beever56 or something like that. He starts out an auction every Saturday from $1 so the price varies each week. He has one on there now. It includes the buttplate. He also has stocks for old Marlins, Remingtons etc, different batch every week. He usually has an 06 and 90 stock. All or most of his wood is fancy or extra grade. He had an extra fancy walnut stock for a 10-22 a while back. I'd like to find one for a 63, 62 and 61 Winchester. Plus a 1901 shotgun.

I have made a change to Woodstock63's system. I have been putting on a heavy coat of truoil at the beginning with out the Armour All. I let it soak in and dry for 3 days before going to using the Armour All. I'm also using scotchbrite pads between coats with a little bit of Turtle wax rubbing compound applied. I then wipe it down with a damp cloth between coats. The addition of the rubbing compound makes it cut faster.

I'm out of the "spray on" Tru Oil but when I get some picked up I plan on using it on the last coat if I want the super shine.

Snake oil doesn't seem right. We may have to add a naming thread for this method. Wish I had this method before I finished 2 stocks the old fashin way last January.

I wonder if using the armor all will give it any extra UV protection?
