I've been messing around with some alcohol based, home made stock stain. Been trying to get a nice reddish-brown. Pics were taken inside with flash.





The neat thing about alcohol based stains is that:
they dry almost instantly,
if too light just add more,
if too dark just wipe down with alcohol,
it doesn't seem to raise the grain at all.

What do you think of the color? Too red? I think I like it. :D

I like that color very much on that stock. It'd maybe bee too red on a plain stock though?

Than again, I like red... :D

Very Nice, well done. Sure brought the figure in that wood. Now you'll have to take pics when it's all put together.
Thanx for sharing. :arm34:

Dude. That stock looks surreal. (sp?)

I can't even get my eyes to believe that they're looking at the actual color.

It looks like some kind of fancy maple type wood or something you see on them $15,000.00 shotguns.

Beautiful. 8)
