This is Sandy. Now don’t laugh at her, she got a little glue in her hair. She’s a beautiful piece of art inspired by a fellow jock. The previous artwork that inspired this was a sanding belt with cherry curls. Let me tell you, I was flabbergasted. I almost bought it I loved it so much, but for 100 bucks I was a little taken back as well. I Said to myself “self, there was a deer in the camp”, and then remembered “hey, I am a woodworking artist too!!” I thought I’d give it a shot, and I think I flunked. Unfortunately folks, she sold, so therefore is unavailable. Mr. William “Trash” Can purchased her for a trade. He is allowing me to put other crap in him too, in exchange.
Anyhow, I don’t want or desire criticism, positive or negative, but if you have to don’t let me stop you. LOL
I want to thank the Jointer for creating beautiful bamboo shavings for sandy’s hair, festool for creating a 6” disk for her beautiful face, and titebond II for spilling on her hair. For what it is worth….This IS a finished woodworking project. The finish is Titebond II. I would have sprayed Lacquer on her but her hair would have fallen out. I would have wiped on some poly but it would have smeared her makeup. So the finish is a natural glue patina. Sorry it isn’t a cherry secretary or a miter saw stand. I’ll get it right next time…...if I haven’t already at some other point during the course of my LJ experience.
Don’t worry, the disk was very well used and was ready for Waste Management to carry it away.
Nothing was hurt in the making of this project, well except for my dignity.
