Well I thought i'd share a few more pictures and give you an update on my latest project.
I think it's coming along quite nicely. Here is the base, veneered and my dear hubby trimming the edges smooth.
And here it is with a clear coat of Shellac, the wheel still needs to be clear coated , but needed to be put together again to make sure all the pieces fit right.
The last step, (for my hubby anyways) is to weld the metal laves together, and attach them to their spot on the base board. Then, it's up to me to finish it with my artwork. Soooo looking forward to this! I'll have more pics as the project progresses.
