Not for gunstocks!! Don't do it. I've worked lots of it and I have logs bigger then you can reach around. Great for knife scales and tools. Also for accents and bows. It's hard to see the grain flow and it will split out. I would like to try on the c and c though.
Nice looker! I just aquired one a couple weeks ago it had been in a guys garage for 20 years he hadn't gotten around to tossing in the trash. The nipple was blown out if the drum. Easy fix for me just need to test it out.
In the woodworking world we use ca glue it can be had in thick,medium and thin. Same as superglue. Store in airtight container with moisture packs and will keep for years. Use a needle tip for controll.
