Whatever you did to that stock makes it look like a whole new brand of rifle.
I really like it.

Thanks!!
All I did was use a sandpaper pad I found in the junk room from the DeWalt orbit sander.
By "hand" I slowly sanded down and rounded off the "proud" areas of wood on the stock.. and also used a long strip of Emery cloth.. holding the stock between my knees ..
To keep the "flow" of the stock shape.
Eazy peezy..
Just keep putting the action back in..
Keep checking things..you'll be fine.
Used some furniture stain, that I thinned up with some alcohol.
That's it.. tiny bit of true oil. ( Bottle was empty)

Ahhh !! That's good...I guess ?
Anyhoo... Attacked another pallet wood stock...orbit sander.. and by hand..
Trimmed it all up to fit the action perfect..yay! Me!
Then swiped some furniture wood finish from the wife's pantry...
Red mahogany 225...
That's what it says on the can..
The only can she had.
And ? It turned out beautiful!!!! Love &#x1f495; it !!!
I sanded everything down lightly by hand after I got the factory Finnish off it with the orbit sander.
Now the bottom of my trigger unit sits flush.. and the back of the receiver fits flush and smooth..
Not bad ? For a bubba job. Sent cracked Cornish some pictures..
Hopefully he'll post one ?
Oh? And guys.. get an old pallet wood stock.. and attack it.. yes..tear into it like there's no tomorrow.
Do NOT be afraid.. seriously?. If the Buckweet can do it... You can too!!

My wife's 10/22 came in a synthetic stock, and I put it in the stock shown below.
I liked her synthetic stock, so I put my 10/22 in that which leaves the pallet wood stock sitting naked and alone.
So, with nothing to lose, I think I'll try to make it look like yours.

You can do it !!
Go slow... Remember . You've got nothing but time.
And drop the action in there often.
Soooo...last night.. sanded down another pallet wood stock.
Orbit sander with a dull sanding pad.
Not positive on this .. but I think this stock is what they call "spalted".. kinda splotchy...
Then I had a dilemma of whether or not to stain it...
Snuck back into the wife's craft room..
Hummm?
What's this ?? A half can of "butcher block oil".. seals and protects ...
What the heck ? Let's try it.
Wow! It's in 3D !!! You know those pictures that move ? That's what this stock does.. kinda like a Vampire in the sunlight....
Anyhoo... Got em both sitting outside on the pickup hood drying..
Be sure to take before and after pictures.
Itching for the flat magazine release to get here.
In the meantime...I gotta mow the 3acre yard... Ugggg... I hate mowing.
After that I'll put another coat on the stocks.

This stuff is AMAZING!!!
((( WATCO BUTCHER BLOCK OIL AND FINNISH)))
I've had both stocks outside in the sun..
Several hours...
Brought em back in .. and while they was hot...
I rubbed em down vigorously, with old crumpled up newspaper..
Then applied the WATCO...
Ohhhh myyyy goshhhh!!!
Beautiful!! Outstanding!! the pallet wood is soaking it up like a sponge..
The Finnish on them is ? I have no words to describe?
Great if ya ask me.
No stain at all on the spalted stock.. getting a nice deep somewhat darker beautiful shine.
The wood grain is like nothing I've ever seen before.
Now y'all don't take this wrong.. because I'm a very very Humble man...and Proud of it..&#x1f601;
But dang ? I've actually made a old pallet stock beautiful &#x2764;&#xfe0f;

Thank you Cracked Cornish!!!

Yes... Second coat of WATCO is on..
Back outside drying.. I'll bring em back in at dark thirty.. rub em down again.. and put on the third coat.
Let dry overnight...
This WATCO stuff is... Wow.. but there's butcher blocks out there over a 100 years old.
Still holding up.. I know this ,because I have a really old one.&#x1f601;
I still cannot believe I did this.
Most of my bubba jobs ..look like ? Well ? Bubbaded....lol
Excited to see how they do with another coat.

And one more thoughts..
On the spalted? Stock I used my DeWalt orbit sander..with a dull sanding pad.. way faster.. and with a dull pad.. didn't want to dig in ..
Also... Once I sanded the trigger guard area..
It gives the stock a little bit of a fish belly look.
I like it!

That one picture up there... Was my first attempt at piller bedding.
See ? Told ya!! ... Yep... Bubba' job..
Ugly as can be.. but ? It's solid as a rock.
These days..I just tape bed em.
Talking with she who must be obeyed...
(She does sewing and crafts stuff?)
Told me not to hurry.. let them dry for 48 more hours.. before putting on another coat of WATCO. ( She should know)
So now we wait.... Ok ? Somebody say something!

Sorry for the late reply Buckweet. Dint know there was a new post here.

Can you take more pix in the sun, of the pretty one, holding the camera more steady and not thru wavy glass?

Except for a couple cf stocks I've bedded the rest were rf's 'spot bedded' that weren't pretty either but got er done.
I fully bedded a Rem 700 that took me 20min-1/2hr beating on it with a rubber mallet with the air turning blue, to pop it loose. Suction of the bedded deep recoil lug was the holdup I suspect.

Carry on.
