After a few months (i'd guess about 80 hours or so), my new lion is completed. I am very excited about it and proud of it-and this one I'm keeping! All too often I make and give away…This one is for me. It contains roughly 70 pieces with no stains being used. Woods used are ash, walnut, paduak, brazilian cherry, cherry, yellowheart, peruvian walnut, redwood, red oak, birch and bolivian rosewood. All comments are welcome-even critique's…how else am I going to get better?
