Work In Progress...
Thought I'd give and updated picture of my Garand. If you look a few posts back, I posted it up about a year ago with a new Boyds stock.... This is still my same beauty, just a bit "polished" If that's what you wanna call it! If you can't tell, the american walnut stock now has a much deeper and rich dark color to it... that's because I spent one or two (maybe three ) evenings hand rubbing my wood...stock. This is a combination of many coats of pure linseed oil (flax seed) and tung oil over time. Some of you may know I've got a keen appreciation for wood stocks, but this tops any I have previously finished.
The picture was taken at Fort Abercrombie on Kodiak, what used to be part of a defensive battery in preparation for the Japanese. I just love the history that surrounds the rifle and these forgotten structures of World War II. Here's a link to some information on Kodiak and WWII http://www.kadiak.org/
