        Beautiful work! I love the finish and the way that you mounted it. What is the contrasting color at the base of the head?

          Hi Eddy, the Contrasting Wood is an Exotic Wood known as Basswood . Ha,Ha. How would have thought ? Just a small Piece of Wood but does add to the overall look . The only Finish on it is Satin Poly U and Feed-n-Wax. Thanks Eddy for showing Interest . Merle

            Absolutely beautiful, Merle! The base really sets it all off and the shape of the head is perfect. Love the eyes!

                Very nice Merle, and a nice save with filling the hole. Gee, there are still $10 haircuts where you live.

                  Hi Joe V, I never thought te Patch Job would turn out to be Satisfying . I did it in about 3 layers . The first layer I made a Thin Mix to be sure it would flow into the Cracks and give a good hold . 2 more Layers to get the correct Level the Sand . Thanks Joe . Merle

                      Hi Jim, Thanks for Commenting . My Barber is a Retired State Cop and he even goes in at 5:00 in the Morning on Saturdays to satisfy a few Guys . A Haircut at 5:00 in the Morning is the farthest thing from my Mind ,but he has been doing that for years . Nice Guy . Merle

                          Great piece Merle! Great fix too. I noticed the lower wheel area of my band saw collects very fine saw dust.....thought I need to remember that when I need to make wood putty.
                          The contrasting color of the base really make it even more attractive. A matching set wood make a great pair of bookends.

                              Hi Anders , Right Idea about the Fine Saw Dust. I used Saw Dust from my Sander which was very Fine . After Roughing out the Knot and leaving Groves and making a Rough Surface in the Hole I mixed a Thin Mix of Filler to be sure their would be no Voids under the Filling . Then about 2 more layers to finish the Level that I wanted . Worked out Great . One was enough , no Bookends . Thank You for your Nice Words and showing Interest . Merle
