That should be know as the Beluga, or the Humpback, or the Guppy, or the Bloater, or the Big Daddy or the Carnagorous Rex!!!

thanks

It's becoming easier but I still don't have a vice or anywhere to put one.

I thinking of buying a shave horse

Very nice Garret

Just looking at the profiles  you are going great at keeping such a long/high spine in alignment while taking the willow off from the back. Seems tough thing to do so nice going mate!

The finish on the bats is getting better too (more shine too)- did you finally invest in a mouse sander or buffing them now or just better camera angles? ;)

In any case great stuff!

i only sand and buff by hand but I dont have a vice so its hard to do it right without a sturdy base. Once i get a vice sorted im hoping there will be an overall improvement.
