Just go get a good quality pice of wood from Home Depot. Then you can try differnt things. iE stains, varnishes, sanding methods. All on one piece of wood to see the differences and what you like and don't. That's prolly what I would do.

If you just want to take a drive, I'm 2 hours south of you. Brother, do I have wood and a full wood working shop. Plenty of Walnut scraps you can practice on. Or, just PM me and I'll give you all the info you need on sanding, staining, and refinishing. Or, I can give you my phone number and we can chat about it. It isn't too tough to do. It's just tough to work up the nerve to do it. But, maybe the stock isn't Walnut. If it's birch or some other inexpensive white wood that a lot of the manufacturers used and still use on the less expensive 22's, it can be tough to get a good even stain. I've had success with that too.

If you want practice wood and don't want to drive all the way to my place, go to a Woodcraft near you. They've got any wood you need. I've been to a few of them in the DFW area, so I know they are a short drive from you, wherever you are. And they have everything you need and the stuff you didn't know you needed till you see it.

Just go for it man. Start with 150 grit, work up to 400 grit always with the grain. Stain with what you want, I usually rub stain in with an old t shirt. Then oil rub it. I usually use truoil. But you can use tung oil or boiled linseed oil. There about 1000 videos in YouTube of how to apply the different finishes. Take your time and you will be happy with the outcome, I can almost promise it.

There is a gentleman in Coleman with a shop behind the Dairy Queen that sells used wood stocks. Never been in the place because, best I can tell, they are only open during the week. Has maybe 100 stocks lined up in the window. You might buy a duplicate of your rifle's stock to be a Ginnie pig, then sell it on ebay afterward?

If your stock is Beech or some other light color, tight grain wood try this procedure. I suggest you buy a piece of the same wood to be a sample and work out your formula before you do the actual piece.

1. Stain with a mixture of Aniline Dye (your choice of color) and Denatured Alcohol. You can use water if your going to spray the dye onto the wood. Otherwise the grain will raise.
2. Apply a grain filling wiping stain. Wipe the stain off cross grain so that the filler stays in the pores of the grain. Inspect the wood closely for micro scratches. What ever you can see at this step will be magnified 20 times once the topcoats are applied. If you can see any hairline scratches re-sand, dye and fill until they are no longer present.
3. Apply the clear coat finish of your choice.

If you want to start with a beater go by Lees Gun Parts in Irving. There is a 55 gallon drum of old stocks right inside the door. I am sure you could pick one up pretty cheap
