Jer, Same comments as for your poinsettia wreath: Wow! Nice Job!
In the pics your finish looks excellent… how fine do you sand and what is the finish?

Hey Spence! Thanks for the comments I sand to 320 then use about 2-4 coats of danish oil followed with a couple of coats Deft spray lacquer (Satin) stills comes a little too glossy for me I may try thier flat next project. If you could make that nautilus shell you could do intarsia.

Jer, The sanding and finishing effort pays off… they look great. I don’t usually aim for the glossy look, either, but certain projects seem to call for it… of projects I’ve done, I used the gloss for the shell and the seahorse… I guess they just seem to need a “wet look”. The shell I made only looks difficult because it is a technique that most people aren’t familiar with… it isn’t all that complicated, especially compared to well-done intarsia. (I’m sure I can do intarsia, it just seems like it progresses too slowly for my taste…) (BTW, there are ‘advanced’ shell techniques that produce larger, true nautilus shaped shells and they do get pretty complicated.)
