  • drum Roll Please...Finally finished

    Well gang, here's my first wood spirit finished and out today for his first breath of cool Canadian fall weather. I'm a little disappointed at the color. I used pine stain (supposed to put it on and wipe it off) forget it. That old pine fence post sucked the stain in like a big old sponge. He then got 2 coats of exterior clear Varathane. He was only out long enough to have his pic taken, said he wants to stay in the house till spring, dang good idea "so do I".

    That looks mighty nice, Tucker....and the wood spirit looks pretty good to. I like the way you painted his eyes.They reallystand out from the wood.

      His expression tells us that he finds it too cold outside so perhaps indoors may make him happier. As for the oils and stains, you'll find that we all have our secret recipes so experiment a bit and see what pleases you. He does look good in the garden...just give him some ear muffs and a hat.

          Great Job Tucker; He looks surprised at the cold and that you would make him go outside at all. Keep up the good work.

            Thanks to all for the kind words. I'm totally hooked on wood spirits, now it's onward and upward (I hope)

                    Slather, nice to here from a fellow Ontarian. Thanks for the compliment, and yes, wife and I fish pretty well every day when the weathers good, Fishins been bad this year, the waters been so low and hot. I checked your Picasa site you do some real nice work. By the looks of the double address, I guess you'll be heading south soon.

                        Fantastic Tucker! Isn't it exciting to put the final touches on a piece and declare it "done". Well done! What's your next project?

                          Joy, glad you seen it with the new eyes and fore head, thanks for the compliment. Next, I'm gonna try my luck at a couple heads following Will Haydens patterns that he so graciously shares for free on this grate old computer for all to see and use.

                            Cliff,

                            Real nice job, looks great outside, like the finish too. Don't forget to sign it somewhere on the piece, maybe a date to just for the record. Bill

                              Tucker, very nice woodspirit. I like his big eyes and I think the stain looks great, too. Is that your backyard? It is gorgeous! That woodspirit should feel right at home there.
