AK-47 stock refinish work final result. Red Mahogany Minwax base coat plus 5 coats Scarlet Rit Dye powder strained through coffee filter with Vodka & about 5 small drops of acetone, a tiny amount required to break down the salt crystals containing the dye. Mix red dye with semi gloss, apply 5 coats, dry and smooth out with 0000 steel wool. Finished with 2 sprayed on coats of Glossy polyurethane. [Original WASR Romainian buttstock, replacement Ironwood upper & lower handguard and grip.]

Took forever for each coat of semigloss to completely dry out in the humid tropics of Hawaii.

Vodka is all you need, the original Song lyrics, changed to "love" to appeal the censors. Nice work on the AK
