Method of application:
Walnut oil preparation goes a long way and a very little is used at a time.
The preparation is applied to the stock and fore-end and rubbed in, preferably with the palm of the hand, so as to produce some friction.
The stock is then left to dry in a warm place (25 degrees) for one day.
Repeated daily application will produce a very fine finish which only needs an occasional application after shooting particularly after a wet day.
Should a skin build up on the stock, it is easily removed without harm to the wood by gentle rubbing with fine steel wool.
The re-polishing of an old stock is achieved after sanding down and smoothing the wood, followed by sealing the grain with a walnut grain sealer.
After 24 hours the above mentioned polishing procedure is adapted using five or six applications to bring up the new finish.
