Did some fat trimming on the fore arm and the tang area. Removed a full 3/4" in width on fore end and dropped the tang grip area 1/4". Aslo doing a Devcon bedding job. I had installed pillars early on but it deserves a full treatment.

It's a Maple stock I made a couple years ago. It had a 3" wide beaver tail forearm that just didn't serve any purpose for me other than target style looks. It got real old real fast and I decided to remove some unneeded material from the upper grip area as well.

What kind of stain are you planning for the stock, and what rifle are you planning to put in the stock?

I had this finished before  in a natural just tinted enough to enhance the grain, kind of an amber tone. I sanded it off for the redo. It's a Savage action, large bolt knob, fluted take off barrel from a Savage varmint model  I rechambered from 243 to 243 Ackley. It all worked very well but didn't fit my style of shooting and it's still weighs a ton. The barrel is heavy varmint contour and 25" plus a stupid brake. I will rebarrel soon to a bit lighter barrel but I'll have to fill the void in the stock channel. :-\

Looks like things are coming along nicely. Can't wait to see the finished product.
