    Hi all, this is my little shooter that I take almost everywhere I go. It's small enought that it can wait in my jacket with some hexnuts waiting its time. The wood is some bush, I think loosely related to dogwood, but I'm not sure. It smells good when it's fresh, like horseradish. Wood itself isn't interesting, because it's only white and lightly pink inside. <br><br>The project started on January in a hotel room. So it's born a long way away. As the wood is only white, I decided I'll paint it. It's my first attempt with acrylic paints. After that I used beeswax, I expected it will work. Next time I would suggest to sand it after it's painted and use beeswax afterwards. <br><br>Anyway, I hope it will serve as well as before painting <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=86&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i69.servimg.com/u/f69/17/72/96/22/2013-015.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=87&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i69.servimg.com/u/f69/17/72/96/22/2013-016.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=88&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i69.servimg.com/u/f69/17/72/96/22/2013-017.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=89&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i69.servimg.com/u/f69/17/72/96/22/2013-018.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=92&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i69.servimg.com/u/f69/17/72/96/22/2013-021.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=93&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i69.servimg.com/u/f69/17/72/96/22/2013-022.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=94&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i69.servimg.com/u/f69/17/72/96/22/2013-023.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>
