Wood Carvings by Mark Sheridan

The Finished Cabin

I applied some clear satin urethane to the carving and found that the urethane soaked nicely into the bark leaving a darker colour and a very satin, almost flat, finish.  I like this finish, but if my daughter, Emily, wants something with a bit more gloss I’ll put a second coat of urethane on the carving later on.  I also added a couple of door-knobs ( which are the rounded ends of a pop-rivet ) and painted them black.

All done!  I’ll get all of the photos I’ve taken of the cabin on the Flickr Site ( the link is to the right of this page ) shortly.

Is it too late in the season to go back to my Hockey Player and complete that carving now?

    A beautiful keepsake your daughter will have from her dad. Awesome work as usual!

  4. Thanks Cheryl. Emily has picked out a favourite caricature that I have at home as well ( Chico and Poncho ). My evil plan is to slowly fill her place with carvings.
