DIY stock

my little brother has to do a major wood work project for school, and can't think of anything interesting to do so i suggested he make a new stock for my .22mag.
Does anyone know of any plans on the net, or have any tips that would make his job a little easier?

Thanks in advance

Re: DIY stock

A couple of thngs that I know and then a few things I don't know much about.

Walnut is very hard wood. It will not shape quickly. A student will need to get the project done and study for other subjects. Think about a non-traditional softer wood.

A shoemakers rasp also known as a half round rasp is a good tool for stock shaping.

If the wood shop has a duplicating machine then things become much simpler.

The way the old stock makers did such precision work was by undercutting ( I don't remember the correct term)the surface so the the metal to wood fit was only good and flush at the surface.

Brownells has a lot of gunsmithing type tools.

For a lot of homemade stock projects go to rimfirecentral.com
