Its Houston and it really was a ice day or two. Snow, Ice and Houston dont go in the same sentence since its so rare round these parts. So when the news says stay home because of ice covered roads next two days. You simply stay home. I love Hou but we just cant drive on ice roads worth a dam. Brokeness and Boredom set in and I got a brilliant plan to stain my wood Wasr AK furniture Plum Purple. Looked around my garage and found Cherry Oak from the last time and 1/2 can of classic grey. I went for the latter. Disasembled sanded down to white wood and started staining few coats let it dry over nite. Next day applied the gloss poly finish and done. This time next year itll be Plum for shure. Its cheap CAI wood furniture they put on all their AKs Foreign and US made So it dont bother me if I mess it up. Ill have reason to by some real Russian or Bulgarian wood furniture.

Wait, what the... I can't see anything. If I read your post correctly, your AK is now grey and black, right? Stealth colors. Well, it worked. You should be able to sling that sucker over your shoulder and go anywhere, no one will see it. ;)

"Attempt at humor" - off.

Very nice. I like it, ya done good.

Looks nice! Snow day projects often end up for the worse.

Did you soak the wood pieces in some kind of solvent for a while first, to get all the residual oils out of there? Just curious how the paint will hold up on the wood.

Truthfuly : no in a few months ill be doing it again maybe plum purple. Its really cheap wood ill have it till I cant stand it no more and get surplus Russian or Romanian. Otherwise I have two sets of Magpul furniture for it Zhukov and MOE triangul stock with handgaurds. Just messing around after being "trapped" at home for 3 days.
