Thanks Aaron.
I need to rebuild my list. If anyone out there is on my carving list waiting for a carving for me. Let me know what it is and when you were put on the list. List it here or PM me. I can't seem to find the copy I thought I had since my hard drive was fried by Jeanne. Thanks .

Ok everyone who had a carving request with Ben better get it renewed because I KNOW we're at the end of the line since we just placed our request this past week. So I will be a good boy and calmly wait my turn in line but you better step up or I might get your spot!!

Ben, I 'd love to be on the list. Your work is simply amazing.

I'm sure I'm last on the list, so you can start re-creating and work backwards from there!

Mr. Ben, how does that little guy have SIX coats of laquer? Do you thin the laquer at all or just apply it real lightly? Seems six coats on a guy that small would smother it, filling in all the features. Its a lesson I can't seem to get through my thick skull!

The lacquer is sprayed on and sanded with 380 grit after each coat. It smoothes out the orange peel and keeps it from getting too thick. Simple

Glad that your leg is almost healed.
