You do absolutely beautiful work. The 3 shotguns you've done so far look better than when they were new.

Absolutely amazing and all done in a few evenings! This may be the neatest thread I've ever seen on any of the numerous websites I'm on. When I see each of those before you start I think no way can he get that in decent shape and then, as the other member stated, they come out better than when they were new!

I finally got the final coat of tung oil on my dads Winchester. It turned out like glass. Here is a video.

Then I added some “poor mans” gold inlay to the lettering on the barrel.
