Seems to me like I spend a lot of time in my shop, but get very little finished…. Well I did finish one yesterday. It is another Fiona Kingdon pattern. Called “Foliate Crucifix”. Cut in maple, 10” in diameter 1/2” thick. Finish is dipped in BLO/MS then sprayed with 4 coats of Deft satin lacquer.

Their is a reason for that Paul? The fine intricate complicated patterns you’re doing that take heaps of time, patience and craftsmanship to do so well sir.
First class job!

Something I’d be proud to hang on my wall, and I’m fussy. Good job.

“Seems to me like I spend a lot of time in my shop”
That, sir, is obvious. and time well-spent.
We all get impatient, at times, but there is a LOT to be said
about slow and steady. This is an excellent example of patience
and price in creativity.. Well done.

I’m never sure if projects this intricate make me want to fire up my scroll saw or just put it away for good.
Great work.
