    You know what, I like it! How did you get that effect? Just lightly sand the ebonised effect? Is it going to be that shiny when dry?

    Oh, you should like your new Dragon too! I made one a while back and am making one for a friend because he liked it so much :)

    yeah i am lucky with the variety of woods around here Olive is plentiful as is Oak , all types of fruit trees and in the mountains Boxwood and Walnut are available , my wife is teaching me some of the varieties as she is a bit of a tree guru .

    Correctamundo about the sanding i just stained the top tips and bottom again with acetate and used tanning on the central trunk . It is then coated with Envirotex and put on a lure turner to dry as it takes 10 ish hours for the envirotex to become stable and at least 24 to harden i normally use it to coat fishing lures and it is super hard and shiney

    I agree with Scooby, I like this 'revised' finish better than the original. It looks really great.
