Nice work so far. I'm interested in seeing her grain pattern after she's been sanded down a bit.

I figured why not? The holes are there and Lee said I could smoke it inside just this once lol

Yeah. Me too. I'll be sure to keep this updated but, I probably won't get a chance to work on it until tomorrow evening.

Awesome.
I had seen that in one of the videos or write-ups I looked at before getting the kit...I almost did it but, wanted to get right to the carving.

Wasn't going to post this cuz it's not much but, I took pics so why not?

Got about 30 minutes to work on this while the kids napped. Got to start the sand paper... barely lol.
But, it's taking shape.

This is so freaking cool!!!

Makes me want to do the same, and I'm not a Piper... Although I used to be a pipe fitter.

Again, too cool, and thanks for all the pics!

I don't know what I don't know.

Just got done for the night.
Hit it with 600 a few times and 'buffed' it with bounty paper towel. Lol
Since it was drilled cock eyed and my first one, I didn't take the time to get every gouge/scratch out.
Just going through the steos to learn and practice them. So you'll see some scratches still there in the pics but, its smooth as glass now. I'll probably sand and buff it a few more times maybe tomorrow before I try the finish they sent with it.
The grain isn't phenominal but, I don't think I'll stain it too dark.

On to the pictures!
