2.9 finished

Exquisite finish!

So, you made a thick toe but scalloped it from the back side to reduce weight?

Cheers internal,,,,,its a thickish toe yeah,,,theres no scallopping as such, as I try to get the toe area rounded, almost domelike.
It could just be the camera angle,,,
The toe tapers down from the highest part of the spine, then its rounded off,,its easier to do than scalloping it out, but hard to get an even profile across the toe..
For the weight its a very very full profile, that spines 62mm

Very crisp lines on that - nice!  No shortcuts anywhere to be seen - even the toe gets a mirror finish :0

Cheers jb,,,,its a lovely cleft tbh, makes it a lot easier when the willows as nice as that

It still needs an immense amount of pride and workmanship to turn it out like that though 👍🏼
