Thread: Spruced up the 300 WEATHERBY

    Default Spruced up the 300 WEATHERBY

    This was my winter project. It was fun to get out and finally do something for myself by putting on a nice piece of wood on this rifle. Decided to go with an English Red type stain becuase it really highlites the figure in the wood. Only thing left is to put on a recoil pad. Anyways thought I would share.

    The pictures look great. Thanks for showing your work. I guess the only question is "What will you do for the remainder of the winter?"

    Woodwork is one thing I wish I was talented at but unfortunately I'm not.. then again never bought the neccessary tools, always used a dremel and files.. The only time I attempted to glass bed a action well actually twice the 1st time did not use enought relaes agent LOL well you should know the rest of the story 1 broke stock later... Only saving grace it was not a expensive piece of wood. 2nd time I got the accra-gel bought the wrong stuff, should of got accra-glass, after I had half the stuff ran out on the onto the floor, oh I was using putty as directed still didn't help, but at least that time I used a enough release agent but it came out horrible. The stock is at my dads house. Also it was not a very expenisve peice of wood. Both stocks bought from boyds. Ever since that my woodworking/glassbedding guns career has came to a halt.
