    Euro's Worth more than a Euro

    Hey, just trying to come up with something new for a heading.

    Here is 2 of 10 Euro's I've done. One is Dyed Blue Boxe Elder with a CSUSA Nickle plating. And the other is "some kind of wood" that is curly. I know its not Maple, I got it is a blank swap. I wanted to make the curl pop better than what is was appearing so I used black analine dye, sanded down and then some light walnut dye, sanded down and repeated several times. Both are finished with plexi.

    They're both very nice, but I really like the blue one. Good stuff, Jon.

    The dyed and stabilized box elder is one of my faovrite woods to work with... always something different, even in two pieces the same color.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Those CS Euro style kits are one of my favorites, They look very classy and have a good heft. Both are beautiful, but I gotta love the blue one, but am I the only one that thinks it looks like and octopus or maybe a galaxy? Musta left some CA open in the shop.
