Here are some more.
This is a Ruger M77 stock that had been covered in cammo tape.
Image

Now it has a nice BLO finish with a Paste wax top coat.
Image

Here is a 2A forestock that had wood putty filling a crack. The other side of the stock was the same.
Image

Here is the crack after it was cleaned up.
Image

And here it is all fixed up.

I use Klean Strip Strip-X when striping stocks.

Some recent work by CandyMan on a M1916 Spanish .308 Mauser. He repaired the cleaning rod channel, recoil lug area, and rear sling swivel amongst other things. Back in commission now!

I saw that FN49 stock in person and I have to say it looked so much better in person than in the pics. I'm can't wait to see how my muzzleloader stock turns out after it get worked over by the master. :thumb:

Wow everything looks fantastic, what would you use other than glue, screws, or pins to hold some of those cracked ones together. Seems like it would have to be at least some sort of glue?

Brownell's does spell it a little funny. Acraglas. :lol: You can alco use Devcon 2 Ton Epoxy with the 30 min. set time.

You can see how most of the repairs are done in the reference sticky section. viewforum.php?f=137

As one of candyman's "victims", I can tell you he does very top notch work. He fixed a butt stock for a ol Remington shotgun for me, and did it all so well, you couldn't even tell it was cracked to begin with, not to mention the new toe he spliced in on it too. The gun is well over 100yrs old, and it will go well over another 100yrs, thanks to candyman.

I have quite a bit of woodworking experience, but he just seems to come up with new ways of fixing things I'd put in the scrape a long time ago, simply amazing work :thumb:
