    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! :cool:

    As soon as I saw the words "pine tar" I was thinking the word "fugly". :p But hot damn that looks like a fine job. :eek: :D Hell I'd be inclined to not want to shoot with that furniture it looks so good :eek:

    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.

    That is some purty wood. Might have to make a wall hanger for it to display.

    Here is a set of AKS-74U hand guards that I used the pine tar method with. These ones weren't sanded a lot and I went for more of a dark red color.

    I used Mahogany Transtint dye, mixed into the shellac.
