  • 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 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.

        Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
        Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

        I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

        I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

        The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

        Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower:

        Here is the pattern on Ricks' site: http://www....
