Recently I asked folks on here about dying a wood stock. Hillbilly suggested leather dye which turned out to be a really nice product. However in my test pieces I didn't get the results I was hoping for but will use the heck out of the product for other projects. I also tried various colors of rit dye and wasn't happy with those. Over the years I have finished a good twenty is so stocks with boiled linseed oil, danish oil, tung oil, minwax etc....many of them turned out great no regrets. With this particular stock I want to try something different. The stock I am working on is apparently birch. It is very light in both color and weight has subtle grain and a couple small knots. I have put a lot of work into this rifle (Mauser 98) she has nice lines great balance and has come together nicely. Have any of you folks had any success that you would like to share? I would be most grateful.
