Thank You

At this rate I probably could have ground it by hand on a stone and still be further along  :o

I don't think Wolf's doing this one...but I am liking the transformation thus far.

Sorry been so long and no updates.

It's really just been sitting and waiting for me to get going on it again. I did do some more sanding to it to the grinding marks off of it but so far that's about where I am. Once I get that done I'll be able to get going on trying to destroy it... I mean apply the inlay =P

For the inlay I figure I'll go with a copper inlay since I don't have the spare money to buy silver wire at the moment but then again by the time I get done sanding it I may just splurge.



P.s. I went through and relinked the pictures since I was working on my webpage layout and broke them all.
