will follow it more with interest superb piece

Hope to see it at a show during the year sometime

Interested to see what type of paint you use ,

Some pieces of painted horn seem to have a translucent pearl effect which brings out the quality of the horn ,rather than a acrylic flat paint many people use

A lot of effort nice one

Hi Stickie

Nice picture,That will help people to understand the carving proccess. one of my favourite things is looking in other peoples workshop. You can learn a lot about them and how they do things. But your picture doesn't give a lot away, especially your presses, so if you show me yours I will show you mine!! lol. That's computer talk I'm told.

Fantastic stick and shops. The stick in the wooden vise is nice too. Thanks for showing us. No pictures of mine for the time being. It's far too messy.

It's amazing to me how flexible horn can be.

Well done. The completed texturing really sets it off nicely. It is great to see work spaces and the tools others are using.

Another ShopSmith user I see. Yours is considerably newer than mine. IIRC mines from 1955. Great tools, I love the drill press feature and the disk sander on them. They make an ok lathe too.

The snake stick is truly a work of art! It's inspiring to see the work of a true master craftsman. Also, thank you for the video on steam straightening, it gave me just the push I needed to get into it. It's an oddly satisfying thing to do in it's own right.
