My lens have fogged up on me.
The joys of humidity and air conditioner in the summer!
anyway, let’s finish up this dice board. let’s get to it.
These bands here… I’m gonna put around the cup.
They really serve no purpose other than just to be decorative.
This leather is real old and real brittle, I’m hoping this stain will soften it up some.If
not, after I get that on it, I’ll put some mink oil or something on it.
They’ve got leather stain, or tanning, whatever you want to call it.
that would probably work better on this stuff, but…
I’m not going to buy a can of it when I’ve got this wood stain. And I usually don’t work
with leather. I’m just experimenting here. And now for some sanding.
Going to attempt to glue this leather on here. I know this is probably the wrong kind of
glue to use.But…. Hey… I never promised to do anything right.
Ok gonna try and put a little more stain on here. Where I’d sanded it a little bit.
This is going to be right dern tedious. I think I’m going to make tedious my new word.
Now I’m gonna let that sit for awhile. Not too bad.
Still some blemishes around there. Now on this other side, I’m gonna do something
a little bit different. And go over the whole backside with some golden
oak. Just because the backside on this aint all that important what it looks like. And
I want to see what happens. Yes I do. I know… I’m suppose to stir it, not shake it.
But I got to tell ya. I had a traumatic incident as a child.
My first grade teacher made fun of a Santa Clause I colored with a blue beard. And ever
since then, I sortta been bound and determined…. “This is my thing… leave me alone.”
This is MY thing… Let ME skin this rabbit! lol
Not exactly sure how this is gonna work out. But gonna give it a try though.
That’s it for this project. I’ve learned a few things along the way. Hope you learned
some with me. If there was some thing you already knew, or a way I could do better.
Please let me know in the comments. Next project is gonna be… I’m making a little
mustard.. and salt n pepper holder for my brother in law. He kind of commissioned me
to do that. I think he just wants to see if I can figure out how to do it. but that’s
cool… I can do it! I’ve had a few people see me doing the wood
carving with the pneumatic engraver and stuff… asked me if I could do some stuff with a little
more detail. I’m gonna work on that. I can’t… I can show you what I’m doing, but, exactly
telling you how I do it…. It’s something that you kinda it kinda comes with the feel
and experience cause each piece of wood and what you’re doing is different. There’s no
specific way that I have of doing things. I kinda go with the flow. But until next time.
thank you for watching. Please give me a thumbs up.
Please share. And please.. pretty please subscribe.
Most of all… have a good day. Have a good life. Cause it’s a short life. meant to be
enjoyed. Til next time. Peace out! Thank ya.
