Doorstops

This is actually quite embarrassing ............... :oops: :oops: :oops:

I cut the first one on the piece of timber, SA Pine, in October 2015 when I started up the Hegner.

The board stayed on the machine and with the dust covers over, could not see it

So, while there is all the dust and mess cutting the Reindeer, a good opportunity to cut the other 3 doorstops.

There is a snail, cat & squirrel.
(the neighbour has already staked her claim on one of them)

I still gave to add eyes and then oil them (boiled linseed)

It only comes out in the summer when I want to prop the workshop door open. This time of year it could be anywhere :lol:

Finished!

For months I do nothing and then cram everything into a couple of days :oops: :shock: :lol:

I decided to seal them with a PU sanding sealer. A lot quicker than oiling.

3 Coats by small brush and a 800 grit sanding between coats.

The cat got some pink eyes and the squirrel green eyes.
