    Autum leaves

    Hi guys.

    As I'm just arrived from my in-laws and already preparing the luggage to come and meet you, I thought I could share some pics of the project that I've been working on.
    In fact the title should have been Autum leaves nigthmare, or so I thought several times while I was working on it. It is not finished at all yet, as the details take quite a while to get right. Only those few leaves on the top left corner are almost finished, although I may rework them at the end.
    Here I was setting in the basig contours with my router

    Toni, this is just amazing. Without changing the focus of this thread, did you finish the tool carving and I missed it?

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Hi Jonathan.

    Yes I did, what I don't remember is if I posted it finished, I think so but I can't find the thread, the searching tool still eludes me.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I found it Toni. Post #99 was the last picture. You were showing us the rasp/file.

    Your talent amazes me Toni. The wood comes to life and looks like the real object/objects just laying there ready to be handled.

    Looking forward to seeing this one progress, Toni.

    An Jon, thanks for finding the tool panel thread, I had missed the fact that he'd finished it. That piece still makes me shake my head in wonderment.

    Sorry about that guys, at some point I forgot to post the final pic. Now I have look for it on my PC. Geez I'm so badly organized!
    Best regards,
