    <div>I actually cut that a couple of days ago and dried it in my oven. Here it is after rough shaping and ready to start sanding. I'm seeing potential here. Stay tuned for the finished project. I think I'll use boiled linseed oil on this one.<br><br>[​IMG]</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    <div>Looking real good! How big is that? I'm guessing about 6.5"x4" or so.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
    <br>Failed perception is when you have a gun, I have a slingshot and you think you are the only one that is armed. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

    <div>Thanks. Yes, those dimensions are about right. I'd measure it exactly for you but it is currently submerged in boiled linseed oil. I'll post the exact dimensions with the final pics.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
