OK, you have me there Doss…that looks like it’d be a royal pain to do on solid wood. I never would have imagined doing that to an otherwise nice piece or furniture for my firearms, but if it sells, it sells…lol, I don’t plan on buying it tho.

On a slightly more helpful note (hopefully at least), idk if you’ve tried this already, or even if it’s really work, but have you tried stenciling your stocks after cutting & sanding, then using a sprayer to spray the color of stain you’re wanting on them (would take several stencils & a lot of time, but MIGHT be easier than resawing the veneers)? I think that method would have the best chance of working using a sprayer that uses a HIGH amount or air, and using the finest, “driest” spray said gun is capable of, to minimize “bleeding” between opposing color strips. Just a “brain-fart” thought, but it might possibly work & save you a little labor.
