As I was working on the finishing the last project I posted I decided to include a couple of gifts for the grand kids as well. Yellow Cedar is kinda a unique wood when one lives on the other side of the continent. Here is a picture of all three ready to send. The finish is WOP, wet sanded a number of times, The grain on the yellow cedar is so fine one can barely see the annular rings, making it a very dense wood and takes a finish really well.

The inside of the bow I used flocking.

Makes a nice finish for the inside. So easy and quick to do. I lill give you the link to a video I made and posted some time ago.

Thanks for looking, I am back in the groove waiting your response, fuel to keep me going. Lots of fuel is needed in the winter, keeping warm here with my wood fired boiler.

Very nice, curious, final finish, how much sanding? Do agree I love flocking too, amazing product but can get a little messy.
