looking good

Cheers Toby still a long way to go yet

 

but the first coat brings out all the grain and the flecks

 

plus the old dark parts that are staying in her

 

if im honest i think its nice to have a bit of old and new mixed into one

 

it looks good imo

Im going to true oil her just as i did with the SMK stock i think it gives a nice finish to the stock

 

The oil and the stain are made from the same company

 

Birchwood Casey

Looking good mate :good:

 

"YEP" your right Mac, a mixture of both old and new mixed into one.

 

Can you imagine, if they "forced" a pair of Speedo swimming trunks on to you and then rubbed you all over with true oil and stain.

Your fecking "dark bits" would stand out then :shok: ,- eh ? "owd git" :laugh::rofl:
