Finished making the last of the parts this weekend and got everything put together. Added the booster step and ears made from the same ambrosia maple as the rockers. The mane and tail trim pieces came from some cherry I had left over from another project. The eyes are the same walnut dowel as the handles only stained ebony. That will be the only stain used on this project.
What remains is some final sanding, finishing and some leather ears. For the finish I am using shellac as a sanding sealer followed by polyurethane. Hope to have the finished pics up next week.
