NEEDED that remark after finding out, that even though I called my Mother to confirm spelling of his name....she was in a store with a bad cell connection...and I had her repeat it twice and wrote it down..AND repeated it back.....SOMEHOW I MISSED the "S" at the end of "Nicolas"
He's always called Nico, and they pronounce the "S" silently, and live across the country, and my brother and I aren't the writing types.
You should have seen my face when Mom said "It's Beautiful...But where/s the "S" ?"
Seeing as it's a double Live Edge piece, and I scrollsawed to Y,0 piece off....been headscratching since Monday night how to reregister it
SO...The rush is off, and I'll have to ship it! Took the whole day off yesterday, and just let the last coat dry 2 days, which isn't crazy as I was pushing the finish a little,
I was also worried about the finish bleeding out in the unpressurized baggage compartment!
Gives me time to pocket out a "Secret" acorn size hole behind Nico's Squirrel
DID carve the tiny Vladimir Script in the front pocket of hers, and did it the same way I do my faint signature.
Z-Zeroed as normal, then Nudged my Z-Zero up .01" and cut, then Nudged down .003" at a time(twice), until it looked "Delicate" but all characters were carved legibly.
For certain stuff, I like the Looks better.
Got the leather circles cut for the bottom, but I thinned my resin mix a little for better control of the build up/gloss , and hers needs at least one more coat before I pocket cut the circles for the leather, Goop them in and place on granite for leveling.
HOPING that now the RUSH factor is gone..MAYBE I'll Stop making mistakes
Thanks again for comment....VERY good timing Ed!
