Sanding Along

leave a comment »

In a minor deviation from the original weekend plan, we returned to Wintervale in the early afternoon yesterday. We had a great time seeing friends and family, but after breakfast at the Original Pancake House with Ben and Althea, all we wanted was to be back at our paradise home.

That gave me a chance to spend a few more minutes sanding my relief carving project in the sunshine on the deck.

At this point, the changes are small, but I find them very satisfying. Worth the wait.

See how the lines of the grain move?

I love to watch the change. It’s still a mystery where those lines will be when I finally reach the final shape. That is a good part of the adventure of sanding and shaping wood.

It was a perfect project for the end of our little weekend “staycation.”
