Walnut. I use Waterlox, but there are a ton of ways to finish it.

Looks like good old American walnut to me, too. You're going to post pics when you get done, and a few updates along the way, right?

you bet your cotton socks i will.
as of now i'm just doing the fine inletting as it is a tad tight,
the buttstock needs a little taken off to fit the plate and the forestock is a little "long "not much but enough for it to bind when fitted over the trigger assembly,got to be carefull here i don't want any gaps between the wood and metal (maybe just a little to allow for expansion,and to allow for recoil stress) .
as you can see(i hope) it needs alittle more off.
and yes i was doing the work while watching t,v (bad,, very bad) the bits and pieces are all over the old recliner..
have a great sunday.
