    PSL stock with slimmed down wood.

    Very mellow and precise.

    I did the woodwork. The butt is a PSL that was reshaped and finished.
    The HG was from a block of curly maple. I used a mini-mill for indents and
    cutouts. Simple tung oil finish. thanks.

    Hi Rahatlakhoom,
    Beautiful work on the stock as well as the conversion! I am working on a similar wood project for my PSL. I am working with Zebra wood, forming it into a Tabuk style stock. I think I will try the tung oil finish myself. Any pointers for using this finish?

    Thanks. Zebra should be nice.
    Just rub in the tung with a cloth, apply light coats.
    You may want to take down the nubs with X-fine steel wool
    after the first coat dries and keep going as necessary.
    It will make an extremely smooth finish.
    good luck.
