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?
