« Part 11: Same Idea, New Project Part 12 of A Special Unicorn Project series Part 13: Have I Mentioned I Hate Painting? »


That’s right. The title says, “ready to start”. It appears after doing a few similar projects as this, that I have to get to this point in the process before I can actually get started. Now is when I start shaping everything and thinking about my details.
I think it is shaping up to be a real interesting piece. There isn’t much I can tell you at this point that you can’t see plainly in the photo. There is one major change I made in it. I decided I didn’t like the carousel style with the pole run all the way up the center of it. I cut the pose off flush with the top of the body and sanded it smooth with the top. Once it is mounted permanently, I will fill in any cracks around the pole and paint over it, thus eliminating the pole coming out the top completely.

I think you are right-it looks better without the pole on this.

Eagle1, it is cottonwood.
Interpim, thankfully, I had never seen that video. Unfortunately, I have now. Thanks so much though. Next time I get into a bottle of rum, I’ll bet I can come back and watch it and laugh myself silly.
