Reinventing the Wheel-- Ur, Staff

Chisels and hammers and mallets, oh my!

We're having to reinvent the wheel, as it were, to make a staff for Bill. He's the one who chooses the wood and strips the bark! But we're getting the hang of it. ;-j In fact it's hard getting Will and Steph to leave some for me!

They left me some. Scrape, scrape, scrape.

Can you find the staff among the branches?

Hiding in the loom closet!

The Party!

Shiny! Varnish added:

W00t! The top hat came today! 8-]
Doh. Bought the wrong threaded insert for the finial -- back to Lowes

Quarter Centurion

A quarter of a century isn't all that much for a dragon, but it's a pretty august milestone for a human. ;-j
