Occasionally my knuckle's lock up and ,,oh it's just the buggers. But I will get it , this wood polishes real nice I did a sample. Thanks for yur comments too.
    Cheers

    Hi Chuck
    It looks to be coming along just fine. Real hard woods are a mission and no mistake but rewarding when you get the job all done. hehehe. Keep on rocking mate looking good.

    Update on the "hands and OH THIS WOOD! After I got the hands cut out on the 21st of last month it has been a very slow chisel and file project. This material is so caustic to me that even filing it has a strong smell and I have to wear my real mask all the time with ventilation going.
    Also one side of it as I chisel or file the wood is chipping or scaling away and I have to patch, peeling like a bark under it and the fingers?

    I have to sand enough material off my extra to have enough to patch and mix it in with my glue to fill in, oddly enough once I sand it out. It looks like a blended part of the grain. I really want this to come out ,, or cut a new piece of lumber ?
    Oh Gerrr, I didn't mention very fine dust did I? it is like Baby Powder, And every where. SO far here is the update. IMG_1369.JPG IMG_1370.JPG Shakin.jpg The fingers have been patched and this stuff is so hard, Oh h,,,ll why complain anyway, It's just fun right And who said , Folk Art!!
    And any help come on over is welcome.

    Hi Chuck
    I had the same sort of issues with a lynx I was trying to get to come good that just didn't so I had to turn it into something else so do understand your frustration on that onehehehehe. Am about to go to round 2 on that part of the project hehehe.

    With your second point I have to agree just buying more wine IS the perfect "solution" to bring about a "solution" to the wine rack issue hehehehehehe.

    Best of luck with round 2 on the hands.

    Off to a real good start on the hands mate. Hey if you had a massive chunk of walnut that design type of the piece with the holes in it would make one heck of an awesome and stylish wine bottle rack.
    Well Glenn,, On the hands, I am having a time getting the fingers correct, I have ground and sanded some extra to make filler and am filling up fingers and going to remove the bottom part of the frame so I can make it correct. Gribbitzz.

    Then if it does come out OK, I am going to start all over on another piece of wood. And PAINT THAT ORIGINAL!!! BLACK! Jus a little disappointed. But as a lil lady once said patience chuck patience.
    HAHaaa, well in my house that wood not work, the vino wood disappear and make the holder unless.. BUT buy more wine...

    Update on the Handshake , I had a WeCheer unit it started leaking and I complained about it they sent me a new one,,, Yippee. and a set of chisels , but they don't stay as sharp as I want and have to keep you know,, Any way I ordered some Foredom chisels and They are nice and by the way fit very well in the We Cheer units... Then I found that the oil leak isn't that bad on the old WeCheer unit,, Now I can change back and forth.. But here is my progress report on the Hands. I will be trading the progress back on the Artsy things this next week. Thanks for looking

    Hi Chuck
    You are never to old to lean to do new things. Looks like you will have to have 2 projects on the go so you can quickly hide the one and whip out the other in a second or two hehehe.

    Best of luckJust take your time and all will be good. !!
