Stage 1: Getting the supplys. It cost me just about $200 for all the stuff I needed. A lot of this stuff is tools that I didn't have before taking on this project. Like wood rasps and files shapers sand paper clamps ect... The wood part I over bought incase I made a mistake. I am still short wood glue. I think I am going for some Gorilla glue wood glue or something like that.
Stage 2: Plans NEVER start something like this with out a drawing. So I traced the outline of the original stock and made my mods to the drawing. Here is what I have so far. You will see some diagonal lines that leads to a small line all the way to the back of the stock. This is going to be the only original stock left after I cut it down and Router it flat.
Here is a close up of the rear of the stock.
Now like all bench guns I am going to make the fore end parallel to the bottom of the butt. I am going to do this by removing wood from the fore end and adding it back with a 3/4"x2 3/4" poplar sanded smooth and held in place with dowels (Maybe). Then I am going to remove the rounded tip and replace it with a 20* straight cut tip.
Wish me luck in my endeavor, because I am really going to need it. I will keep you posted along the way.
