    Coonan357, did you completely strip w/chemicals, or sand it down?

    that thing is GORGEOUS! I have several old 10/22s that are beat up, and that looks like a nice way bring some happy to that corner of the safe.

    Stripped first with Citristrip, and then sanded.
    Look for a three-part video series by Mark King on YouTube. It was very easy for me to follow. I did a search for "refinish 10/22 stock"
    Many thanks for all of the compliments. I am very pleased with how the stock turned out.

    Very nice.

    An inexpensive half-century old plinker has now become a priceless heirloom with a story destined to become a family treasure.

    I like it when life does that.


    The Tru-Oil is an under-appreciated product. It makes just-ok-wood into nice stocks.

    BTW your table-flat north TX photo warms my heart.
    Grew up in the pan handle.

    Will be driving Austin-Sweetwater-Lubbock-Clovis-Santa Fe this Friday.
    Anybody who thinks our earth is overpopulated should make that drive!!!

    22lr is one of my greatest life pleasures.
    Happy shooting.

    Nice work!

    That 10-22 wood doesn't take a stain very well and I had a couple of beater rifles that were in sad shape. I filled the dings and gouges with epoxy then sprayed them with flat black rattle can paint. It wasn't classy, but they came out surprisingly well!

    Nice job!

    After carrying my 1911 S&W Commander for about a year now, the Koa grip on the side closest to me had darkened from sweat. I sanded and used steel wool to bring back the natural color. After, I used Tru Oil and waxed with Renaissance wax, and now they look better than when I bought the grips.

    It's kind of tedious work, but the results can be spectacular.
