« Part 2: The start of my, "Not any kind of box" Part 3 of My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards series Part 4: A few more pictures »

Well I got a little more accomplished.

I did a little design change today, I removed what I called the chin at the bottom side of the heart.

I held a piece of stiff sand paper, & drew a cutting line, then proceeded cut off the chins.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Note; the cut off line.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A big improvement with no chins. I call this “Wooden surgery.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Using a cable driven drum sander to round off the legs.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Roughed out legs with 60 grit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Enough for today, “LUNCH TIME”
I sure like it better without the chins.

Very nice looking piece of wood. It looks like it’s coming along swimmingly. I think it looks better without the chin as well.

Hmmm . . . really interesting Dick. For some unknown reason it reminds me of Dr. Seuss.

Thanks to all!

I’ve been having fun with this project, & watching it come to life.

I guess I’ll have to put a chain on one of its ankles to keep it from running away. LOL

Thanks for sharing the process with us Dick. That’s my sort of approach – let the design develop as you go along. It’s going to be a beautiful creation and that lovely grain’s going to enhance the design.

I bet the surgery wasn’t painless—did you hold your breath as you made that first cut?

When Zuki said “Dr. Seuss”, I pictured Alice in Wonderland, with the walking objects.
The heart says “beautiful” and “sentimental” :)
