polyurethane spray? I have a can of this stuff and was wondering if I could use it, with several coats, followed by some trewax or Birchwood casey gun stock wax to give my stock a more pronounced finish? Any tips or advice much appreciated.

I was surprised at the difference a silicone gun cloth did to the wood stock. The grain of the wood jumped out when wax didn't do much. The difference amazed me. It is safe for wood.

Thanks for the info. I've been searching around and I'm going to give this stuff a try. I like the results satin poly gives through searching.

I can't find out what to do about checkering? Do I just not spray there? lightly? rub it in? Spray normally? I'm new at this :? But am really wanting to try this. I've only applied a couple coats of B-C gun wax.

Do not spray urethane over wax.

The silicone gun cloth worked on wood checkering, made it a deeper colour. It did not work on plastic stock checkering, ending in lint debris.

I used it on all my guns both air and powder. I liked the results.

The whole point of the Urethane is to seal the wood grain and protect it from the elements. As Joe said, if you're going to lacquer the wood, yo need to remove any wax or other oil based finish prior to staining and sealing.
