    Because I'm board

    My type "A" has kicked in...if there are no blood and guts involved, my attention span is equivalent to a 3 year olds'. I though all this time off would be a turning blessing...hmmmmm
    First one is a little chunk of really pretty stuff Vaughn gave me so he'll have to tell you what it is Big chunk of rot on top limited the shape options. 3x3 with 1/8" walls, sanded to 400 and one coat of AO. I know the shoulder is sharp...but I like it!
    Next is a 5x4 piece of apple sent from a friend back east. DNA'd it all wrong so checks are filled with espresso/CA. 1/4" walls because it kept moving on me. Finished in Mylands...really gave it a true color. Hand buffed Renwax. I jacked up the foot so no pics.

    C&C usually used

    Cheers!!

    Jim, they look good to me. The shape is different and it grows on you. Nicely done.
