This is my second effort working with poplar. I wanted a hair fork with a whale’s tail at the top, so I cut it out and shaped it the same way I did with my first fork, using only my hand held Dremel and the cutting bit. Then I sanded the heck out of it and stained it with watercolors then sealed it with a couple of coats of krylon crystal clear.

Nicely done. You’ve learned a lot since the first piece. Looks like you’re having fun too.

Thank you all! :) And yes, I suppose they are out of the ordinary for a wood working site.
