I applied three coats of a spray laquer, and three coats of spray poly and the ark is finished. Next up is the animals. Just need to figure out how to keep them from falling over while spraying.
I am also working on another cross. This one is going to be made out of 1/4” walnut. There are over 280 cuts in this one! If I do 28 cuts a day, it should only take me 10 days to finish the cutting!
