Well this is something that i had in my head for years and last summer i finally pulled it out, (it didn’t hurt too much LOL)
The handle and blade guard are lacewood, the blade is a really cool mineralized piece of cherry, the stand was just 1/2” mdf painted. Then i took a couple of small chunks of glass from my kiln and inset them in. All was finished my usual way. 2-3 coats of brush on 1lb cut shelac then 2-3 coats of wipe on poly. Of course sanded in between each coat.
oh yeah the gargoyle thing was carved with my dremal outta cypress then some inset dichroic eyes. Painted with same paint as the stand.
Anyway hope you like it, let me know either way…
And have a great day…............ Dug
