Latest Carve

Went sea theme and multiple pieces, lots of detail work with the Dremel, I think my hands are still vibrating from yesterday. Finished the burn and final mounting, which was a disappointing start with dowels that kept breaking, galvanized landscape spikes with the heads cut off worked great. Waiting on weather to seal.

Very impressive. This is a cool piece as we have a bunch of turtles as pets (not sea turtles). Great work!

Nice Bob! Keep going. The progress you make with each piece is impressive.

Skill is improving, but getting the right tools certainly helps, i have a shelf full of newer Makita power tools, the belt drive finger sander has really helped.
