its really coming along…pretty awesome William, glad your doing it a little at a time,,, much better then sitting in the house…to me, its one thing to see a complicated project get done by one who can crank it out, but its another to see accomplishment by one who has challenges and still gets something done, and i have to say i really admire that in you…just keep working at it…..its looking really good, grizz

That is so fine. One of my favorites. I would go for the final finish.

William, This is gorgeous and it definitely looks finished and in my opinion doesn’t need anything more except a rider! I showed this to my wife and she says the same thing “it is done” Perhaps some shiny finish??

I can sympathize with your pains as I, too, have back problems but it doesn’t seem near as bad as yours.

Break out the Carrousel. She looks fine just the way it is. You know when that 6’th sense says something. Listen to it. Great job William. It needs to be in a fairy tail…

Have you had a chance to scroll a little on that book Stand?

I will come see you shortly and bring a big ole pain killer called Laughs;)

I think all of you are right. I think it’s time to shellac it. Thank you all for the opinions.
SuperD. I’m sorry, but no, I haven’t done anything with the book stand yet. That’s next on my list when I finish this. Anytime I work on more than one project at a time I get so unorganized (even more than usual) that neither project turns out very well. So I have to finish this before I start anything, even the book stand. I promise it’s next thought.

I love just like it is! Can’t wait for the finish to go on . I think there is just enough decoration as is ,too much would make it too busy and take away from the piece. Excellant!
