    If only they had not trained with the grenade launchers.

    Frank,

    My K31icon has a small 1/4" v chip at the very end of the beech stock by the stacking lug. I had glued in the piece but it did not hold. What is your favorite glue for these projects?

    Dave

    My guess is that he cut the chipped area square then glued in a block and clamped it using Gorilla Glue. Afterward it is shaped using a fine wood rasp then final sanded and oiled/stained to match. That is how I do mine.
