Default Refinished Shotgun Stocks

I thought I would share a few pictures of my weekend project. I was bored with the lame finish and scratches on my 870 so I decided to spruce them up a bit.

Looks sharp! Nice job! What did you use for the finish? What steps in your process?

Stripped it down entirely. Started with a heavy 100 grit on a palm sander and worked down to a 300 grit by hand. Two light, even coats of stain. A coat of poly. Lightly sand it with #0000 steel wool. Another coat of poly and a very light brush over with the steel wool + rough rubbing with a cotton towel to get rid of any tack.

Lookin' good brother!

You know what the "best" final sandpaper grit to use?

A brown paper bag from your grocery store. Don't knock it until you try it!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
