Now "it's a Daisy"
« on: October 13, 2018, 03:21:37 PM »
I got the Chief AJ adult stock and loop lever. Well, the lever looks good but the edges are not rounded off, they are not sharp but also not comfortable to use much without a glove. The loop lever doesn't have any recesses to hold it up either, it is just flat. The adult stock comes plain with no logo or finish. I decided to buy a wood-burning Iron and burn in the logo. I got a cheap one at Harbor Freight Tools. I took a pic of the Red Ryder and enlarged it to fit the larger stock and printed it, cut it out and taped it to the Chief AJ stock and then used and awl to transfer the pattern and then burned it in. This is my first attempt at wood burning. It would have been better if I practiced first but I get hand cramps easily when fatigued so I just went for it. I can live with the results, and I may buy another and do it again sometime. I started with a blade tip but didn't like how it was working so I switched to a pointed tip. Now I need to put some true-oil on it and call it good. Here is a pic of the one I used with my Chief AJ version. I took a little artistic license and made a boot on the Red Ryder and changed the grass and weeds a little too.

HA! How cool is that? Excellent job!!

I used some stain on mine but if it had a logo burned in, I might have gone w/just a Tru-Oil finish too.

 I used Carver Tripp Danish Finish in American Walnut. Spar urethane over that. Not sure if that same C/T finish is still made though. I like the Birchwood Casey walnut stain, too. I've use it w/Tru-Oil over it and it turned out good IMHO. It's shown below:

That's awesome, I've always disliked how those are plain.
Who wants to turn a red Ryder into not a red Ryder , the stock makes it so after all.

If you call your shots some days you kill it and some days you choke, some days you blast off and some days you just smoke.

I agree, I thought I would try because I couldn't ruin it!
