Round things  
  
  
  
There is a lot of dead ash and elm trees on the farm. They are gradually being cut down for fire wood. I help a bit and get some good logs for sculpting. 

I have never in my life been able to properly polish anything. I can never get rid of those unsightly scratches from earlier rasping, grinding and sandpapering.

I guess now is the time to learn. Even if it takes me all day tomorrow.

I broke on through (to the orher side) without breaking the stone in two.

And I came out exactly where I predicted.

Now I must get into the power tools, altho I like the slow pace of pounding and chiseling by hand.
