The wood in the front was balanced by a wooden barrel out back, making everything much more old fashioned and cool. I'm starting to really get into this thing.
As I sculpt I forget the whole purpose of the exercise is to build a project that utilized the fourth axis capabilities of the new router... but then again it will be many weeks yet before it arrives, leaving us plenty of time for that aspect of the project.
In the meantime we'll continue to have a little fun. :)
