Phase three is about to come to an end. The last section just went up for the final fitting and adjusting. Now the match line can be carved and the piece stained. Some "modifications" from what I originally envisioned, but the overall effect is still acceptable. It has been a long process, sometimes frustrating, but mostly enjoyable. Now who can I get to put all the furniture back ?

Oh, I've been wondering about this! It's really stunning, can't wait to see it stained. Tell you what, I'll put the furniture back for you, just as soon as I can get up there, lol.

hiya balvenie,

As previously stated, a truly elegant piece of work amigo. I marvel at it every time I get a look.

Your skill and technique are steadily becoming something more than a few of us here aspire to.

As the staining and final finishes are applied, please keep us updated.

Thank you, as always for inspiring us,

best to you always,
don

Finished at last. The carving that is, now the rest of the sunroom needs to be worked on. A seemingly never-ending scenario. By the time one thing is finished something else needs fixing. The good part is that I have something to fix !

Those wandering Vikings weren't into Totem Poles, but the prow and gunwales of their ships had some pretty cool carvings. Just a thought.

Hey, who moved that furniture back?

I just wonder what it must feel like to have something that beautiful come out of your hands and tools, and then to get to live around it!
