I had some walnut from a bedframe that is about fifty years old. The repairs have been made and the product looks pretty good.

I am worried though that when I finish it, the two different woods will take the finish differently and make the repair more obvious than it is now.

This wood is very straight in grain and for a while I doubted that it is actually walnut. (The reason for my original question.)

Some of the bruises in the stock are deep enough that I am not comfortable taking them out. I am hoping they will give the finished rifle some character.
