Stock Finish part 2

This part of a build doesn't make for very impressive updates, it's a lot of the same over and over again, wit very little change to show for it. With the staining done, I have moved onto hand rubbing an oil finish into the stock. It currently has 8 hand rub coats on it, with probably 10 or 12 more to go. The pictures really don't do justice to this wood. It has a beautiful figure and depth the camera just can't capture. The weather today isn't being very friendly so I couldn't get it out in the natural light.
