I needed a cheek rest for proper eye alignment to my scope on my pretty much out of the box Remington model 770 in a .270 caliber. I found a butt donut under the sink in my bathroom that wasn't being used and chopped it up to make the rest. I started off by cutting too big and slowly hacked away at it until it was just the right height, maybe a bit lower to allow for the fabric and adhesive I was planning on using. Everything I used for this was the donut, a long strip of Velcro, some fabric I stole out of my wife's stock pile, some spray adhesive we had lying around, and a glue gun. My wife is pretty crafty so the glue gun is always around.
