i would have picked wood glue over jbweld. wood glue penetrates the pores in the wood and forms a super strong bond stronger thant he wood itself. jbweld is only as strong as the thin top few micrometers of wood its stuck too. you will prolly have cheek rest and stock seperation at some point. just keep an eye on it.
shoulda bedded it before putting all that awesome work into it heh.
if you can do the wood carving and forming and all the painting you can do the bedding.
