Grand daughters new B-B gun had too long of stock for her short arms.
The original stock is plastic and hollow; not practical to shorten. I had palette wood that I scrounge from the candy store(Cornwell Truck) next door.
The pictures show the results.
She did want her name “engraved” on it also.

The old coarse 1/2 round woodrasp did the initial shaping, best tool I know of for some things.
The engraving is just deep wood burning. I then torched slightly the rest for effevt.

The fininsh is just pastewax rubbed in hard. Easily fixed for kid damage.

Great. I did something similar for my son about 35 years ago. Thanks for sharing. Good job on this BTW.

Looks like an instant heirloom. Bet she’ll have fun with it now, and finding it in thirty years to “lend” to someone special.

ralbuck, you are a neat grandpa. Now she can notch the stock every time she knocks over a target :-)
