    Thanks you for passing on your knowledge. Too many carvers feel the need to keep secrets from those willing to learn.

Will be headed to a NoDak rig that gets gunned very heavy. Somewhat of a magnum sized bird with a very wide footprint and blown up breast. Hand tooled this one today. Hope to have hollowed and glued up tonight.

    man, when I messed with that stuff, it was in the back yard, AND on a tarp. That was to catch the particles to mix with varnish to seal the voids.
    Did you float the black? From the photo, it looks a mite narrow from side to side. I assume you put a wood bottom board on it. DO NOT work in the garage! As you already know, the dust from that gets on everything and everywhere. Tracking into the house may be a bone of contention.
    I second the tan cork route. Problem with the stuff you can get up your way is that it is TOO DAMN HEAVY. Guess you can hollow it out, though.
