I am replacing the missing bullseye on the stock of my 1981, 336, 30-30. I was thinking that I may refinish the factory walnut stock at the same time. My question is: would you use TruOil stain to inhance the color or TruOil stock finish alone?
Thanks in advance
Pictures, man...PICTURES!I'm refinishing a walnut stock now using Formby's Tung Oil finish. It's more of a varnish type than pure tung oil, but so far it's looking great. I opted for the low gloss version. I'll be putting the third coat on propably tomorrow as it's taking around three days to properly dry between coats, but I'm in no hurry at all. I want it done right. As others suggested no stain is needed for walnut as it looks great on it's own. I'm sure the Tru-oil would be great as well.
