All those little pieces you see in the photo, those are the detail pieces for the tail. The real reason I put up this photo though is to show the sander in the background. It is a Rigid spindle/belt sander combo. While I haven’t taken the time to review it here on Lumberjocks, I want to tell you all about it now. I was worried about the two hundred dollar price tag when I bought it, but it has been worth every penny. It has cut my sanding time on projects like this one at least in half. I love it and if it burned up tomorrow, I may have to save, but I’d definately buy another one.
It is late and I’m worn out from today. I made a major boo-boo on the tail when I originally cut it. I didn’t catch it until I was half way through with cutting the detail pieces. For a second there, I thought I was going to have to scrap the whole project and start over. After having a cup of coffee and a cigarette while I thought it over though, I figured out a way to fix my screw up. That being said, if noone can tell me what the mistake was, then I’m not telling either.

It has just been one of those days. This is pretty much all I got done today. I finished the tail. I touched up a few spots with paint. I painted the hooves pink. I thought about what I wanted to do with it next. Then I decided what I wanted to do next was to go home and go to bed. So, until next time, goodnight everyone.

1) You put the tail on upside down?
2) You put tail on wrong end?
3) All the pink pieces are supposed to be white and vice versa?
4) Not supposed to have a tail?

As you can see, I don’t really see anything wrong, so I guess It’s a real Unicorn after all! Nice work on this!

It looks good to me, William! As a matter of fact – it looks exactly like that last unicorn I saw in person! Whatever it is, it isn’t evident. All I see is a beautiful treasure coming more to life each day! You are doing a splendid job! I look forward to each new post your put up on this project!
