Dent in stock
How was it that you remove a sharp dent from a walnut stock? And don't ask why I need to know.:mad:

The only way I know of other than fillers is get your ole lady's Iron, set it on steam. Get you an Cotton wash cloth or towel and wet ( damp is only needed not dripping wet). Lay the cloth over the dinted area and steam it with the iron. Make sure you dont scorch the finish or topcoat by laying the iron on and leaving in one place.

As long as your dent is not "creased" or you see broken pieces of wood grain, they will lift out. If it is you need some good wood filler and some time:D

Oh and how did you do it:D

If you wish to keep the orginal finish and it is not one of them super fancy so glossy it blinds you finishes you can steam it as long as you didn't break any of the grain. If you did then your screwed you will either have to fill it with wood filler or bondo.

If your stock has one of them glossy finishes do not take a iron to the stock it will just melt away the finish.

You could always send it to Camo Solutions and they have a dip that looks just like real wood grain.

I believe the color they have is Walnut Grain.

Deet will slightly discolor (Yellow) is the only drawback to this stuff.
