  • Hank the Mule

    NO...he's not done yet!

    Is it just me? I've been working on Hank for about 10 day's now and the more time I spend on him the slower the progress gets!

    I'm doing Judy Robert's Mule pattern...


    This is what I had completed as of Thanksgiving day...


    I made some good progress on Friday..


    this is where it starts getting good, tiring to figure out the finishing plan..
    I fumed the blinders and eyelashes for about 15 hours with ammonia and they turned out great..so now I thinking that I might fume all the pieces at different times to get all the different shades in..

    This morning Toni mentioned in a post about sand shading. so today at work I found me some sand but after re-reading her article in SSW I don't think that would be a look that I'm looking for...

    so now I'm back to Fuming..
    I spent a lot of time sanding those ears and they still have dark area's!


    anyone else have any other tricks for Cherry?

      Hey Trout,

      Hank's cutting looks really good! Nice tight cuts!!
      I've looked at the photo of Hank versus your choice of wood. What are you concerned about with the ears? As for sandshading, it wouldn't be my choice for cherry either.

        This looks something like your saw? I bought it at lowes about January 2008. It was listed at $170 then, but mine was a demonstration model without the cardboard box, so I got it for $120. I recall they had a cheaper brand listed for $119, which was what I originally planned to buy. I don't recall...

        Not quite carved, although I did go overboard a bit using my Dremel to smoothen the edges of the 'ropes'. Still they were cut out piece by piece, sanded/smoothed and glued into place....

        Meanwhile, another giant palette wood airplane
        by Ennobee
        While still trying to summon the courage to finish the final version of my Gotha bomber, I got sidetracked and stumbled upon some plans from two years ago: a giant four-engined brother to my earlier Fokker Trimotor... The ultimate 1930's dieselpunk engine.

        THe plans were designed for 1/2...

        He went to his meeting last night and it was a tool swap. He came home with - Jet slow water grinder (?), new never used air brush, and a never used spray tent that exhausts to the outside and an extra tent. All for the grand total of $35....
