Base Readied for Staining
Is there anything quite like working with wood?
My earliest memories and just about all of the memories that I have of growing up with my Dad had something to do with working with wood in some fashion or another. I can remember as far back as the first job I was given was to blow the sawdust off of the pencil cut line while he used the handsaw. It seemed that there was always something made of wood that either needed to be created or fixed.
He’d get a real kick out of my latest carving of the Three Hounds and would even have appreciated the way that the base for the carving is coming along.
I’ve done some sanding and used the router to put a nice edge on the base. This weekend, I’ll finish it with a medium stain and a few coats of urethane to give it a nice shine.
