Default Re: new project

OK....I have an update. The new pad is installed and I found out why the Finns covered up this mess of a stock. Worm holes, knots and other imperfection abound. They should have thrown this stock in the trash! I hand sanded all day today and my fingers are sore and few finger prints survived! I think the checkering is going to be fine but this wood is a real challenge. Tomorrow the first coat of true oil goes on which will tell the story..... happy or sad.
