The colors in the pine are amazing. I'm working on a piece of pine now too and the colors in the wood are beautiful. I look forward to seeing it finished. Are you going to stain it?

Most likely. I'm not sure what I'm going to use yet. I may try some shellac or some oils this time.

Well here is the finished product. Tried a few different finishings but wound up with a light coat of red oak topped with some amber shellac. Thanks BigT for your help and tips! As usual I still see lots of imperfections but overall I think it came out ok. The motorhead skull was what Mark at Howie's wanted. Personally I like it as I'm a fan.

Thanks y'all!

Big T yes I wound up just letting it cure for a few days and I did some light sanding over the Marquesean cross to lighten the background of it a bit. Afterwards I dropped a new coat of Amber shellac which I think helped balance out the color...

Here's a PNG inspired mask I did for a close friend of mine. This was a lot of fun. The eyes and tongue are removeable.
