    I re-did my Enfield

    My No.4 had some varnish and stain beforehand, (so someone already touched the stock). All I did was remove this prior finish back to its natural state.


    The upper handguards are walnut, and the stock is beech. Now they got a natural tone and feel to them. We sanded down the rough scratches (there were some going against the grain! , and this also took out the nasty plasticky feel the wood had).

    After sanding to an ultra-fine texture, I went over the wood with seven coats of BLO. It feels good now.














    The wood will darken over time. At first I wasnt too sure whether I was going to dig the two tone look, but it's not bothering me and the wood feels nice and clean.



    (Devil is in the details here).
