Grape Man

Postby TReischl » Sun Jan 20, 2019 9:11 pm

I saw Mark-S's post of his Green Man earlier this week and it inspired me to finally do something with the Grape Man model that has been parked on my computer for ages. Yup, another one of those "when I get around tuit" projects.

This one is 9 X 16 X 2 inches thick. The model height is 1.5 inches. The material is mahogany, or at least what they claim to be mahogany these days :::shrug:::. Anyway, it cut very nicely. After removing a few fuzzies I gave it a coat of shellac, then steel wooled it a good one and another coat of shellac.

The bark is from the texture files.

The bark is really cool - but maybe a glazing would make it even better.
