    so we hold on and i was cutting a rowan fork
    so we continued cycling

  2. Moin moin,

    hhhmmmmmm
    let's hope they do not - What was the name in the book - wooden beams ...
    has
    So no cracks gets ...

    Still leaves drann the true but no damage to property, nor of growing wood, right?



    hhhmmmmmm
    hoffen wir mal das sie keine - Wie hieß das im Buch - Holzstahlen ...
    hat,
    also keine Risse bekommt...

    Noch Blätter drann, das wahr doch keine Sachbeschädigung, von noch wachsendem Holz, oder?

    You really have the fever Lars!
    Nice work shaping these out.

    If cracks do start to form, you can try sealing them in a big ziplock bag with the shavings and work chips packed all around them to slow the drying.
    Woodlathe turners use this trick to allow turning of freshly cut wood with thin walls that normally would crack violently. Takes them months to dry, however.

    okay i did some finish 4 days ago but i lost my mobile in my school bus
    today i recieved it

    so ... the finish:
    the stain wasn´t very deep in the wood
    i sanded the "corners" from carving and got this tiger stripe look

    then some clear paint

    and polished
