This is a 50/50 pine tar and turpentine mix first, followed by shellac mixed with dye, etc.
Pine tar gives the laminate wood that warm, glowing look. The shellac is used as a top coat, once the pine tar/turpentine mix dries.

Well what do you know? I was prepared to not like it because I thought it would be ugly, but I am very impressed and like it a lot!
Really nice work!
As soon as I saw the words "pine tar" I was thinking the word "fugly". But hot damn that looks like a fine job. Hell I'd be inclined to not want to shoot with that furniture it looks so good

Noobster, that may very well be the best looking AK on this forum.
I mean that.
I made the mistake of taking my AK to a tupperware party and have found a new liking for wood. You just might have taught this old dog a new trick.
I'm re-thinkin' the tupperware;
Did you happen to take some photos of this refinish?
I'd love to see a how-to DIY thread.
