Stock 182, Pear Sporter



Log in to see fewer ads
I've been working on a new ambidextrous stock this week. My wood of choice on this one is pear. It's gonna be a little strange looking, but that's what makes things fun. Actually, the stock feels pretty good.







This picture is of my pillar being installed





















The last two pictures show the stock with some color added. I decided to go with a die that is two parts brown and one part yellow. The stock has 2 coats.

I made a few little changes since I last posted pictures. Just didn't care for the color of the dye I chose for the sock, so, I decided to make a change. The stock was sanded down to bare wood and we now have blue.

Looks terrific, your stocks exemplify what this hobby is all about in my opinion. I really like the way you transitioned to the forearm from the action inlet area.

What brand of dye do you use?

Thanks for checking out my work. I got the dye off amazon, seems to be pretty good stuff. I think The dyes are so much better to use than the stains.
Here’s my 6.5 creedmoor I did a while back, with the same blue. It is a curly maple and the figure really popped.

The dye did great, the only problem with the pear wood is it is like a sponge. You have to use a sealer, before you can apply a finish. This stock was finished with satin lacquer. I like the dull finish look on this one.
