1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Are there any treatments out there for changing the appearance of your wood on a rifle ?

    for example, bleeching a new colour or adding walnut effect ?

    depends what wood your talking about , if its beech you could
    try stripping it bare and colouring it with a walnut stain and finishing it off with oil.

    wood stain

    Hi PW, i've bleached wood at work. This will just make the wood a lot lighter in colour. You can stain wood without bleaching it, it depends on what finish you want. You can stain wood any colour you like. We use spirit based stains in various wood colours(light oak, dark oak, mahogany, walnut etc) aswell as plan colours. We get ours from a company called The Bollom Group (www.bollom.com). Hopefully this will help, cheers Stu.:up:

    Stains

    Hi PW, I'm not aware of any stains for grain effect on airguns.
    I have seen artificial "burr walnut" applied to furniture.
    It's a highly skilled technique.
    Maybe you could look up some French Polishers in your area for some ideas
