My First Dovetails #1: Getting Started and How I Got Here

08-07-2011 11:57 PM by MGW | 3 comments »

In lat...

Good day. I now have the wood for my new workbench.

It's an action figure....

06-30-2011 06:57 PM by mpounders | 5 comments »

nope, it’s a doll. I’m still practicing female faces, only this is a smaller model, which does add to the difficulty a bit.
