oooooh, he's a nice one! It's cool to see the transition from the "rough carve"
to the finely finished piece. Can't tell you how many times I've squinted at
my chiseled work and thought "this is never gonna amount to anything" and then...Voila!

Super work...no matter what you use for stain...gonna be great.

Don't EVER think you can remove a coat of poly, and try and stain. Well, ya learn from your mistakes I guess. I put a light, rub-on coat of poly, to go with the raw wood look. Didn't like it, so I tried to sand off the one coat. Then applied a Sedona Red stain...and BLECHHH!! Ruined. I tried sanding the stain off...that'll never work...so, kinda stuck here. Might have to paint a solid?!! Hmmm

Here it is done sanding (notice, the squared off nose)...


After the one coat poly (sanded nose to be rounder)...



It's like lookin' at a kid with zits!...
