I have a long way to go but enjoyed the learning process. I good tip received was to use a tennis ball and wrap it with sandpaper. Saves the fingers and keeps consistent pressure more so than doing by hand. On to the next one…...

I am a big fan of many live edge things!

This would not have the same great appeal without the live edge!

Live-edge pieces have a charm all their own, don’t they? Great job.
