Got the kit in hand. Stock has a nice tight grain and I believe it’s white oak, decided it needed some finger/thumb grooves on the forearm so I got those roughed in-feels pretty good in the hand now. Took about 5/16” off the bell so it doesn’t look quite as cartoonish & got all the stupid warning stamps filed/sanded off the barrel-they were stamped deeper than I thought.
Going to try for a color case hardened look on the barrel using some stuff from steel FX

Lots of sanding & polishing that gives me plenty of time to think about it.
