I am sure I read the answer to this recently, but in my advancing age I have forgotten where. I want to know how best to finish a walnut gun stock. Would a coat of linseed or tung oil followed by several coats of oil-varnish-mineral spirits mix give sufficient protection for the outdoorsman/hunter who might get the stock wet from snow or rain? What did the older gunsmiths use that resulted in such a deep rich reddish brown? Thanks!
