MK1 BREN BUTTSTOCK


FOR YEARS I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THE ELLUSIVE MK1 BREN BUTTSTOCK. WELL RECENTLY I HAVE FOUND ONE AND FOR ABOUT THE LAST MONTH OR TWO I HAVE WORKED ON THIS ABOUT EVERY DAY.

FIRST I TOOK CARE OF THE DENT AND DINGS THAT WERE REPAIRABLE. NEXT IT WAS CLEANED WITH VARSOL/MINERAL SPIRITS AND FINE STEEL WOOL.

AFTER THAT IT WAS WET SANDED SLIGHTY WITH EXTRA FINE PAPER AND BOILED LINDSEED OIL. THEN WITH A MIXTURE OF DARK STAIN TO HIDE THE IMPERFECTIONS.

THIS HELPED CUT THE LINDSEED OIL SOME AND DARKENED THE WOOD SOMEWHAT. AFTER THE SANDING THE STAIN AND LINDSEED OIL INTO THE WOOD I BEGAN TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF STAIN IN THE MIXTURE UNTIL PURE BLO WAS BEING USED.

OVER THE PERIOD OF A MONTH OR SO I RUBBED PURE BLO INTO THE WOOD. FOR THE FINAL TOUCH I USED A BEESWAX/BLO MIXTURE FOR NICE SHEEN.

NOW ITS DONE. STAY TUNED AS IT IS PUT ON THE INGLIS MK1 BREN.

AS A NOTE I FOUND THAT A WAX TACK CLOTH NORMALLY USED FOR REMOVING DUST PARTICLES FROM SURFACES PRIOR TO PAINTING LEFT A NICE WAXY SHEEN TO THE WOOD BETTER THAN THE BEESWAX MIXTURE MENTIONED ABOVE.
