Lelya Gen 1 Stock Refinishing
I want to put a Walnut stain on my Edgun Lelya stock, but I'm concerned it may be beechwood. I have read horror stories about refinishing beech, and am asking if anyone has refinished a Lelya stock, and/or knows what kind of wood it is? Advice???
I'm old and never have attempted this before.
Tru-oil my friend. What I would suggest is to strip the filler off first. Gently sand any stubborn areas. Clean with denatured alcohol. Sand with 400, 800, 1200, and 2000 grit. Then hand apply tru-oil and hang dry. Before applying the next coat make sure the top coat is 100% dry.
