Looks great! I, like some others, think the cracks add that little boost of character needed for the old-school look. That pendant looks x-tra sweet too-great finish, a real eye-pleaser.

I agree. Good stuff. I'm glad you didn't let the cracks stop you. It looks like you found a way to make them a part of the piece, I like it. Let us see some more once you get the final coats on.....

Well, I finally got a chance to upload something. It's been jammin' summer. Busy, busy...but not a lot of carvin' unfortunately. Still waiting for some wood to dry out. In the meantime here's some progress on a Tangaroan I'm carvin' for myself!

Thanks Finkdaddy-o and McTiki, always good to hear. It's just your everday ol' basswood. Carves and stains easy, guaranteed not to crack!
