An Old Smk Refurb This Is Going To Be Pic Heavy Lads

Recommended Posts

The thing is Jim, I don't know what lies beneath the patina of wear. But it has some lovely rich dark tones of colours in the grain so, anything you can do to enhance these is really welcome. You be the judge as you're the man who will sand away all that surface finish and wear marks and see what lies really underneath it all.

 

You bring out the wood as you see fit sir. You'll do a brilliant job I'm absolutely sure :thumbs:

Im off work to day so im on smoothing duty s to day lol

 

I for got you old saying mate and i could kick my self as it is right

DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME then you will not have to do it again

Looking at that stock now I would not be putting any dye on it; just smooth it out no more water- then oil it with tung oil or Danish it doesn't need any colour added to it.

Mac, as you do so many have you thought about getting yourself a set of cabinet scrapers? only about £10 - £12 for a set of 3 and it'll save a fair bit on wet and dry, just a thought.

Here you go Mac,

You might want to have a look at this youtube clip first to give an idea of what is involved, and always go with the grain, smooth as a baby's arse.

You might find it too much of a faff though, what with the burnishing.

That`s starting to look very nice indeed mate :good:

 

 

Tell you what though, i`ve never, ever, seen a stock with a knot in it before , unless i`ve led a sheltered life :icon_redface: .

 

 

Looks great Mac, keep up the excellent work.

 

atb.
