    Thanks again. Spike is a great looking girl. Love the name on a female cat.

    And hereís just one more picture...because this project is done.



    Between yesterday and this morning, I put on 4 coats of satin lacquer, lightly sanded between coats with 320g paper. Lastly, I rubbed in a coat of wax with 0000 steel wool and buffed it to a soft shine. This lady was devoted to her dog and I figured she would pet the box on occasion, so I wanted it to be pet-able.

    That looks really nice - it touched me a bit because my dog was also born in 2006 - and while happy and still enjoying life is on heart, kidney etc tablets.

    Actually, I would be happy to be interred in that container myself. ( Happier if it happened a long time in the future of course.)
