Hi Dennis
Thanks mate.
Its surprising how the sanding sealer covers the fine details up. I may have to redo them again..........its hard to see on these images but, every feather has been cut and maybe I should of cut them deeper...............all learning!
 
Thanks again mate

Cracking work there Marc!
 
What about using oil instead of sanding sealer? Oil would soak in to the wood as opposed to lying on the surface – might preserve a bit more of your carving detail in future...

Hi Ralph

Hi Ben
Cheers mate.
I didnt think of using oil as I was going to finish it in wax but, I will think of that on the next one.
 
Hi Alan
Thanks to you too.
 
Hours......so far around 30'ish.........not counted really as I've been on and off it for a week or so.

Hi Marc,
 
You can always oil then wax. Linseed oil tends to give a yellow tint that doesn't look too good on light hardwoods. However, you can avoid this by using tung oil.
 
Keep up the good work...

Sorry, on the walls of the kitchen and not the tops ..............years back she said it would be cheaper than buying paint and redecorate................

Hi Thomas
Thanks mate.
I find it very therapeutic............only problem is that time passes so quickly!
