Spot the difference...

There is a difference, honest. Took me all together too long to plane the mating surfaces of the bow and doubler to a good fit, but I got there in the end. I could really, really do with a small smoother for this sort of localised task... At least the scrub made short work of levelling up the underside and the shaping of the arms should finish that off nicely. Apart from the comb I'm getting to the point where I can't put off the rounding tasks of legs and sticks any longer. Ho hum. Maybe if I do a bit of arm shaping, then a bit of stick shaving, bit more arm and so forth...?

Oh, and while I was scrabbling round for info on the shave pony in The Porch archives I found this series of posts. A worrying resonance for at least one of us. i.e. Me. Funny thing is I was thinking this afternoon about maybe making a chair devil...


  1. Alf, I don't think there is any reason for you to be embarassed about getting tips published, you've got stuff to share and you share it, good on you I say. (Insert clappy emoticon here)

    What might be cause for concern would be getting the same tip published in several magazines, in the same month. I'm not sure if your A.E. of C. managed that, but Mr Giolitto did - more than once too!

  2. P.S. forgot to add smily, winky emoticons at the end.
