Beautiful! Are you going to paint It? I think it would look awsome painted!

WesternRider 06-21-2012 01:22 AM

no paint i suck at painting stuff and with the stain i use it shows the detail better as im not very handy when it comes to painting

Looks great. Have you ever tried wood burning? I bet you would be good at it.

WesternRider 06-22-2012 12:57 AM

in fact i have but i didnt like the heat my skin burns soooo easy and i wasnt understanding how to make the lines go darker without it lookin stupid i think however it would look awsome to add wood burning into my carvings

i was starting a name plate for my new horse bailey but i almost stabbed myself realy bad in a bad area the inside of my thigh because my knife is so dull it slips

Ouch!!!
I think adding wood burning would look nice.
