Some Stock finishing tips requested
I am getting ready to finish a new stock. What can I do to accent the wood grain (walnut). Best color? Does Bone Black help? If so, best way to apply?
Lastly, I really like a Tru-Oil finish but am looking for something more durable. What results has anyone had with the urethane type spar varnishes? What about "Permalyn? Others?
In the end I am looking for something that will make the stock as water resistant as possible, resist everyday handling (I'm retired and hope to go shooting as many days as possible), and require no "touch-up" rather than a little cleaning where I grip and rest my cheek.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
