    Too hot, break time again, even Quality Control is ready for the A/C, the fans just not enough..

    Worked until about 10:30, decided to string it up, even though it is a long way from finished..

    The fireworks were getting loud and Quality Control demanded that we go inside!

    Loving this thread! I’m Still at a loss as to where the resin pine cones and pine needles will come into play.

    It really doesn’t, I just thought it would make an interesting looking riser.

    I assume they'll show up after final polishing?

    This is just incredible. I’m always impressed by care, precision, patience, expertise, and mastery of a wide range of right-tools-for-the-job. Thanks so much for sharing the process in such detail.

    Got to do a little more filing and sanding tonight, still a long way to go on shaping, then getting all the file marks out. Since it has been ask, and I am also a little curious myself, I decided to use some fine sandpaper to get an idea of what it will look like...
    I polished the shelf side with steel wool, didn’t take as much pain with the other side, still too much to do...
