    Romanian wood refinishing

    I redid a set of Romanian wood with no rhyme or reason using iodine, scarlett, and zinser amber shellac. I liked the look I finally achieved after 3 different times of stripping and re-applying, but there was always a tad too much brown to it. Unfortunately, I destroyed the finish after placing the rifle somewhere I shouldn't have. The shellac seemed dry but it wasn't... lol

    Do any of you have pics of Romanian wood stripped and cleaned, hit only with an amber shellac and nothing else? I've looked and all I can find is Izhmash clone or original Romanian style.

    I sanded this set down then hit it with a very light stain after that 3 coats of satin poly.

    Looks good!


    I have four sets to play with, I guess I can just do one in amber alone to see what it looks like. None of the sets have trench art aside from one buttstock with a very simple and poorly done cross lol.

    Man that looks good. This is something I've need to do for a while, but I've been putting it off.

    Great job!
