    of my mother's Ithaca 37 Featherlight. IMG_20200926_194251568.jpg IMG_20200926_194305670.jpg Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. It appears to me, and I'm no expert, that I got a 12 gauge stock, rather than a 20. I had to remove a BUNCH of wood that was proud of the metal. I don't mind having the larger stock, it fits better. Now to the sanding. A palm sander was suggested, I'm gonna do it by hand. When I get to 600 grit or so, I'll stain it. A quick go over with 2000 grit for the raised grain, then Tru-Oil. Well, so much for my first inletting in about 25 years.
