    I am looking for some recommendations for someone who does checkering. I have a TMX that I want to refinish, but need the wood re-checkered first. Looking to have it done this winter while shooting is slow. I live in N. Central Indiana. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

    I'm with Larry....do everything else and then checker...and you may want to mask off the existing checkering when applying finish....

    Ok, I was wrong and it was not the first time and probably won't be the last. hehehe I thought you checkered then refinished. I had two other pieces done in the past and I guess I never actually asked which was done first. The man who did them for me always did a very good job. But he passed on and I never had any more done. Bought this TMX and it does need some attention to the wood. Want to get it done during winter while I am not shooting as much. Thanks for all the info and I will be watching this thread for more input.

    I used a fellow near DeKalb, IL named Art Bowman a few years ago to checker a stock for me. He did nice work.
