Although I wasn’t able to just plow through and finish the owl like I had hoped, I got some good “feathering” time in. Who knew owls were covered with so many feathers… sheesh. Suffice to say I’m going to get right back to it to stick to my “plan”: [list style=”circle”] Wednesday evening – Finish…Details
My wife had commented on how my last post, about the Murphy desk, was “instructionally vague”. I must admit though, it was sorta on purpose. As I’ve said before, “This this the way I do it.
