I just picked up a WASR 10 and I'm considering refinishing the furniture. What products have others used to do this?

Pics would be nice.

There is a really good thread about it on here somewhere that i have been looking for but cant seem to find. If and when I find it, ill post a link.

It had everything you would need to refinish the wood and what supplies worked.

I used oven cleaner to remove everything unwanted, took about 4 cans. Washed down with water. Wrapped the wood in newspaper and placed in the closet to dry slowly for a week. You don’t want it to dry too quickly, may cause the wood to crack. Sanded out the dings and what not. Started with 150 grit sand paper and finished up with 2000 grit sand paper. Get it down to baby butt smooth. Wiped down with a tact cloth. Then applied 7 thin layers of Minwax semi gloss polyurethane. Wait for each coat to dry. Then lightly hit each coat with 0000 steel wool to knock off any rough edges. The whole process takes about 2 weeks to complete. I have done 2 AK’s of mine and 4 SKS’s along with several friends’ guns. To me they look great! If you want I can post some pics. Also, if you have really bad wood, too many dings, I tried truck bed liner on one and it came out great as well.

Strip it and lightly sand it smooth. Then rub in a half dozen or so coats of tung oil and rub it down between coats with super fine steel wool.
I've done a Romy AKM stock like this and did a Romy PSL stock set this weekend the same way. They look beautiful. It's a nice KISS way to do it!
